The animal was spotted and photographed earlier today
Walkers near Thomastown have reported sightings of a large black pig, thought to be a boar, wandering around the forest taking in the mild spring weather.
He was spotted along a walking trail adjacent to the River Nore in the 'Happy Valley' area, not far from the Butterfly Valley Glamping site.
The animal - described as heavyset, with two small tusks, and about 'hip height' - is ambling through the woods apparently quite content in his surroundings. He does not appear to be confined to any sort of enclosure.
