Bid to chart wild boar population

Wild boar numbers will be officially measured after numerous sightings across Dorset.

Once considered a rare species, the animal will be included for the first time in The National Gamebag Census.

The census is carried out by The Game Conservatory Trust, which advises the Government on environmental issues such as bio-diversity and disease control.
