As many of our local residents and their children travel throughout the surrounding RM’s for work and leisure, we are sharing a safety notice issued by the RM of Pleasantdale as it may affect the safety of our residents as well when travelling in and through the area.
WARNING: WILD BOAR SIGHTING
A run of 25-30 wild boar have been sighted in the RM of Pleasantdale near the areas of NW-30-41-18 W2 and NW 30-40-18 W2. These sightings border properties in the RM of Lake Lenore. The RM is issuing a warning to residents to be cautious especially when it comes to the safety of our children.
- Just like other wildlife, feral boar will be most active at dawn and dusk.
- Wild boar have great senses of hearing and smell and will generally avoid contact with humans, unless they sense a danger to themselves or their young.
- If you see a boar keep a safe distance especially if piglets are present.
As a reminder, Saskatchewan residents can now hunt wild boar without a license. Residents are still to maintain reasonable safety expectations like asking permission to hunt on private property.
