"boar hunt has reached new record highs during the last year. However, if the swedes continue to opt out of the meat, there is a risk that very little goes to waste in the future."
"– wild boars is growing faster than the popularity around them, " says Daniel Ligné on the Swedish hunters association."
"the Moose has for many years been the most hunted viltslaget in Sweden, but in the last ten years, the boar hunt started to key in. Last year was shot over 13 000 tonnes of wild boar in Sweden, which corresponded to two-thirds of the shot älgarnas weight, according to new statistics from statistics SWEDEN."
"a Total shot 114 000 wild boar in the last hunting year, which stretched between the first of July 2017 and the end of June 2018."
"We have never shot more in this country what we know," says riksjaktsvårdskonsulenten Daniel Ligné."
"In the late 1700s from the Swedish wild boars as a result of high hunting pressure. After they were re-introduced in vilthägn more than 200 years later, a bunch of wild boar escape from an enclosure in the counties of Södermanland in the middle of the 1970s. Since then, the population has grown and spread across the Swedish forests, which is the reason why more and more are being shot, according to Daniel Ligné."
" According to the forecast, we will need to shoot between 200 000 and 300 000 wild boars a year in the future for it to be sustainable."
"the Market is, however, difficult to keep up with. Despite the fact that vildsvinsköttet is both eco-friendly and free from antibiotics, the swedes have been frugal with using it in cooking."
"That the wild boar often portrayed as a pest and to the flesh, in rare cases, they contain parasitic worms trichinella can have an impact on its reputation, think Ligné."
"– You do not need to be the least worried because of all meat consumed is undergoing a trikintest. There is only a single known case of a person infected and then, it was about the meat bought on the black market."
"the Articles against the vildskinka"
"the Interest for the boar, however, seems to increase. According to recent figures from HUI Research has 22 per cent of swedes have eaten vildsvinskött any time in the last six months."
" We have been working to get it out in public areas, type of schools and care homes. For example, the gas station the Circle K decided to start selling vildsvinskorv and a couple of matkedjor have campaigned to replace the julskinkan against vildsvinsskinka."
"Together with the federation of Swedish Farmers, the Swedish hunters association presented a proposal to the government to allow small-scale sale of vildsvinskött."
"– In the day may not sell vildsvinskött to their neighbours or the local pizzeria, but the meat must be sold via vilthanteringsanläggningar which makes it cumbersome to get out on the market, " says Daniel Ligné."
"TT: How do you yourself cook wild boar?"
" wild Boar, you get to hunt all year round so there is always to get hold of. In the autumn, the pots and in the winter I like to make vildsvinsstekar. And so, I think vildsvinsburgare becomes very juicy and tasty, because the meat contains much fat."
"the wild Boar was one of the early immigrants to Sweden after the ice age. It arrived around 11 000 years ago and established himself in the south of Sweden. The wild boar were hunted back then and after agriculture was introduced, competing with tamgrisskötseln."
"A grown wild boar in Sweden is about 1 meter in height and just over 1.5 metres long. The sow (female) weigh, usually over 100 kg, while the boar (male) is heavier and can weigh upwards of 200 kg."
"In pace with the wild boars has become more also has vildsvinsolyckor has increased sharply in Sweden. The years 2010-2017, the number of vildsvinsolyckor by nearly 150 percent."
