Wild Pig (Sus scrofa) is a species of the pig genus Sus, part of the biological family Suidae. It is the wild ancestor of the domestic pig, an animal with which it freely hybridises. Wild pig are native across much of Northern and Central Europe, the Mediterranean Region (including North Africa's Atlas Mountains) and much of Asia as far south as Indonesia. Populations have also been artificially introduced in some parts of the world. Elsewhere, populations have also become established after escapes of wild pig from captivity.
Adult males are usually solitary outside of the breeding season, but females and their offspring (both sub-adult males and females) live in groups called sounders. Sounders typically number around 20 animals, although groups of over 50 have been seen, and will consist of 2 to 3 sows; one of which will be the dominant female. Group structure changes with the coming and going of farrowing females, the migration of maturing males (usually when they reach around 20 months) and the arrival of unrelated sexually active males.
Wild pigs are situationally crepuscular or nocturnal, foraging in early morning and late afternoon or at night, but resting for periods during both night and day. They are omnivorous scavengers, eating almost anything they come across, including grass, nuts, berries, carrion, roots, tubers, and refuse.

The sight of such a natural ancestor of our modern Domestic Pigs makes aware, which awful breeding „efforts" we men brought off there.
