There are a lot of wild boar (sanglier) roaming the woods in this part of France. They are unlikely to attack unless cornered or threatened but they do cause quite a lot of destruction by rooting around and damaging farmers’ crops. They are widely hunted during the season; their meat is prized and it keeps their population under control.
Walking through the dense woodland I’m always aware that we are being watched by numerous hidden animals. A deer jumped out onto the pathway ahead of us on our morning’s walk. Neither Diane nor Rick saw it although they did pick up the scent as we moved forward. Then I glimpsed the boar, crouched down behind a bush...

Not a boar of course but an old tree stump!
