You will mainly find boar in forests of Europe northwest Africa and it's also found in Asia.
Pigs quickly adapted to new zealand conditions.Like many introduced species with plenty of food and no predators new zealand populations quickly grew and mobs spread across the country. This resulted in widespread disaster
The wild boar is a omnivore, whose diversity in choice of food rivals that of humans. Its foods can be divided into four categories:
Rhizomes, roots, tubers and bulbs, all of which are dug up throughout the year in the animal's whole range.
Nuts, berries, and seeds, which are consumed when ripened and are dug up from the snow when abundant.
Leaves, bark, twigs, and shoots, along with garbage.
Earthworms, insects, mollusks, fish, rodents, bird eggs, lizards, snakes, frogs, and carrion. Most of these prey items are taken in warm periods
The wild boar also known as the wild swine or wild pig is a native to North Africa and the Greater Sunda Islands. Human intervention has spread its range further, making the species one of the widest ranging mammals in the world. Its wide range, high numbers and adaptability mean that it is classed as least concern by the IUCN. The animal probably originated in South-East Asia during the Early Quaternary period, and outcompeted other suid species as it spread throughout the Old World.
How wildboars were
introdusted to New Zealand
