And finally… boaring
The mayor of Rome has reported a neighbouring regional government to criminal prosecutors over its alleged failure to prevent wild boar invading the capital city.
Virginia Raggi has asked the Public Prosecutor’s Office to enforce a 1992 law requiring Italian regions to control “wild fauna species”, Euronews reports.
She has blamed authorities in the Lazio region for the “massive and uncontrolled presence of wild boar” in urban Rome, which has led to havoc and injury.
A video which went viral on Italian social media in May shows six wild boar chasing a woman near a supermarket and stealing her shopping.
Protesters assembled outside the Italian parliament in July with banners reading “After Covid, the plague of boar” and “Town and country united against wild boar”, according to The Guardian.
