  • Although more than 146,000 wild boar were killed by hunters in 2019, only 13 per cent of the animals were butchered by a licensed operator reports SVT.
  • Selling or distributing wild boar meat to people outside the hunter's own household is illegal, because of the risk of spreading illnesses.
  • The hunters' association says it is aware of illegal sales, but denies it is a major phenomenon.
