A wild boar isn’t normally the first thing that springs to mind when we think of a pet, but looks can be deceiving, and love can turn a dangerous animal into the most docile friend.
Adrián is an Argentinean who was born in La Plata and moved to Mar de las Pampas for employment, where he purchased land and constructed a home.
He’s been living there for fifteen years. She brought a dog that had died three years before. The man adores animals and owns a number of them.
He knew about a boar on the verge of being killed by multiple hunters, with the mother’s body ending up in a bag.
He didn’t want the tiny one to go through the same ordeal, so he tracked it down and brought him home. Gervasio was his name after he was bottle-fed.
“It was a huge tragedy since he was so little, about the size of a shoe and just a week old.”
I began by giving him a bottle and a little pen, which has now grown in size. “My friend was maturing,” Adrián explained.
He gives him the same food that he feeds his dogs, and he enjoys watermelon, tomato, and grass roots. The neighbors feed him as well, but Adrián forbids them from giving him meat. He has grown extremely gluttonous, preferring seafood and weighing about 200 kg.
He is not as active as other animals of his kind, who may wander up to 40 kilometers per day. Adrián says he hasn’t traveled more than 100 meters.
Since his arrival over a year and a half ago, the young animal has lived peacefully with his canine siblings Firpo and Shincal, as well as a cat. He has picked up on his mannerisms from him, and when his father comes, he cheerfully awaits him at the door.
“The most essential thing is to love and care for him, as well as to treat him nicely.” He acts like a dog and has the same traits. “I usually say he believes he’s a dog,” the guy continued.
Gervasio’s dietary requirements grow, and he now consumes 1,000 kilograms of barley every week, at a cost of roughly 143 dollars for a bag of 50 kilos. Fortunately, he has some pals who produce beer and are willing to share it with him.
Adrián believes that if he had known, he would not have adopted him, but he adores him and takes excellent care of him.
The animal has never been angry or had a nasty attitude.
