Boar from forestry commission land have been causing damage in Coleford in Gloucestershire. Deputy Surveyor for the Forest of Dean Kevin Stannard is one of those responsible for managing their numbers.
It's a delicate balancing act. Wildlife groups say that boar were once indigenous to the forest and have welcomed their re-introduction. But they breed at a phenomenal rate and can double their population in a year.
Mr Stannard says that they do roam into towns and villages, as this is part of their foraging nature. They are simply looking for food. He says they are currently trying keep their numbers down to 400.
