Farmers: Wild boars damage crops near Salfit

June 11, 2012 4:31 P.M. (Updated: June 11, 2012 4:31 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Wild boars on Sunday damaged farm land near Salfit, farmers said.

Farmers told Ma'an the boars damaged apricot trees, wheat crops and seedlings. They said the boars were released onto their land by settlers.

Residents and local officials in the area have for several years complained that settlers release pigs, which have caused injuries and destroy land in the rural communities.

The Applied Research Institute - Jerusalem says that while Israel claims it cannot control the wild boar population in the area, and the purposeful release of pigs cannot be confirmed, Israel's separation wall has pushed the animals to search for new habitats.
