Ustí nad Labem is offering a 300 crown reward for every wild boar shot within the city limits where they are not supposed to be. The reward is part of the city’s policy to curb the boar population which regularly makes its way into the centre and suburbs. One animal even made into the central city polyclinic before being put down by a vet. Around 50 cases of damage caused by wild boar have been declared this year. Parks and recreation fields are frequent victims of boar digging as they search for food. The mayor has highlighted the fact that it’s not easy to shoot the animals in built up areas.
