Germany expects surge in wild boars
The German wild boar population in 2007 will be larger than in previous
years, increasing the odds of Classical Swine Fever
The prediction was made by the German wildlife rangers association (DJV), an
organisation that has approximately 300,000 members.
According to the
DJV, the number of wild boars has been exploding due to the relatively
favourable weather conditions last
Usually many weak animals die over
the winter period - however, the warm weather allows feed like grass, insects
and mice to be abundant.
The Austrian research institute for wildlife
and ecology (FWO) in Vienna expects this tendency to see the same tendency to
show up in the whole of Middle Europe.
