Émile is a young wild boar, born in the wild. Very young, he was captured by a farmer-hunter in a snare trap. The farmer kept him and moved him into a cattle trailer, feeding it with food scraps.

Word of mouth warned the French Office of Biodiversity (OFB).

Émile was 6 months when he arrived at La Tanière on 28 August 2019, weighing 17 kilos. He's a very playful young wild boar who loves dog kibble and fruit such as grapes.
