Holy Boars, Batman !

The other afternoon while out walking with my wife very close to where we live, we came across a bunch of wild boars who were busy scarfing up apples that had fallen from a tree. There were three large adults followed by a bevy of baby boars. We were quite surprised to find them out so early in the day and so boldly out roaming around in public. Usually they shy away from people, and often do most of their scavenging at night. Needless to say, they gave us a good scare, boars can be aggressively dangerous, especially if they are worried about their offspring... I didn't need any Phillips Milk of Magnesia after one of them grunted loudly at us from the underbrush after I started taking pictures of them...
