They don’t have natural enemies, but the wild boar is in constant conflict with humans. While thriving on six continents, they not only wreak havoc on crops and livestock, but also create hazards for drivers.  We’ll talk with Jeffrey Greene, author of The Golden-Bristled Boar Last Ferocious Beast of Our Forest. He wrote about his own experiences with the boar.  And, film contributor Milos Stehlik challenges many of the critic reviews for the film The Tree of Life.
