TheHunter: Call of the Wild Wiki

"Also known as the wild swine or the Eurasian wild pig, the wild boar is native to most parts of Europe and Asia. It is also one of the most spread and adaptable mammals in the world, characterized by their bulky bodies, coarse fur, and prominent shoulder hump. Their head is shaped and used as a veritable plow, allowing them to upturn considerable amounts of soil and rocks weighing 40 - 50 kg (88 - 110 lb). A wild boar can run up to 40 km (25 mi) per hour and jump obstacles above 1.50 m (59 inches). Boars are highly social animals and tend to live in groups. Hunters should take considerable care as boars are very tough and will not hesitate to defend themselves if threatened."
