During today's morning, Friday 16 June 2017, a wild boar hunt was scheduled inside the Galleana Park di Piacenzabut the attempt to shoot down two wild boars that had been sighted 24 hours earlier failed. There Provincial and Municipal Police intervened at 6 with the aim of drive away ungulates, now a threat to residents. The area is in fact frequented by hundreds of Piacentini every day, but it has been closed to the public because there is a danger that the wild can attack at any moment.
One of the two specimens, a male weighing about 80 kilos, was spotted and surrounded several times by authorized operators, but managed to hide in the vegetation. The other boar, a female, has not yet been found. However, the Emilian Municipality has specified that there will be no killing.
The forced removal went wrong, now he will focus on a narcotic to be fired at a distance, relying on an association in Modena. The Galleana Park is also known as "Pope John Paul II" Park: it has a total area of 150 thousand square meters, 100 thousand of which are lawn.
