The Boars of Berlin

The city of Berlin has a wild pig problem. Each year the 30 hunters employed by the Berlin city council are called upon to kill more than 900 pigs in the streets of the city.

Here's an audio link to a folkloric and sometimes ghastly Radio National documentary where the reporter went on a pig hunt, met a meat obsessed chef and a local church minister who's struggling to keep the boars from digging up his cemetary's graves.

Who said Radio National was boaring?
