The Forestry Commission is due to carry out what is expected to be its biggest cull of wild boar in the Forest of Dean later this year.
The population has grown dramatically over the past decade, along with the number of complaints about the damage they do.
The BBC's Tim Muffett has been examining the debate over whether the cull is the right thing to do.
