The wild boar resurfaced yesterday, in the middle of the street in Woluwe-St-Lambert: Brussels Environment is looking for a solution that is “the least damaging possible”

It has been agitating the web and the municipal authorities in the south-east of the Brussels region for several weeks. Seen in Woluwe Park a few days ago, it has just resurfaced. Yesterday evening, he was seen walking in the middle of Voot Street in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert, most certainly coming from Woluwe Park. This is the fourth time in a month that this solitary male has been seen and filmed by residents.

Last week, the mayor of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre Benoît Cerexhe (Les Engagés) called for a solution to the problem. “I’m slowly starting to worry”, he explained last week. Fearing an uncontrollable reflex from the animal. “Even if the wild boar is a rather timid animal which seeks to avoid contact with humans and flees from them, a fearful situation should not trigger a defense reaction in it which endangers the safety of walkers and others. their dogs. I asked that measures be taken as quickly as possible so that this or these wild boars find their most appropriate place to live.”

Wild boars in the city: should we be worried?

The fate of this wild boar is in the hands of Brussels Environment, which is negotiating a solution with the mayor of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre. All options are open, confides the regional administration, which nevertheless favors the least damaging outcome possible for the animal.
