Don Animal were able to capture a wild boar last Saturday in La Cala del Moral, which belongs to Rincón de la Victoria.
Residents of the Serramar, Cueva del Tesoro and Calle Tamadaba areas of the town say that they have “lived in fear” of the wild animals for at least a year. They believe that at least five wild boars have been coming in search of food in the evenings and report that two dogs have been killed, one injured and a child has been charged at by one of the animals but was not injured.
The animal was caught using a tranquilizer dart gun and is currently at the Don Animal rescue centre in Arroyo de Granadillas.
José Antonio Villodres from Don Animal said on Saturday that the organisation would be “maintaining its vigil” in the area in the hope that they will catch the other boars. He warned people not to approach them as they can be “very aggressive, especially if they are with their young.”
