The laws of ecology are the same as those of economics. The president of the Bioparco di Roma Francesco Petretti tells us the reason for the urban “journeys” of families of wild pigs
Someone with a skilled photomontage has replaced him at the Lupa. It is he, the boar, the new animal symbol of the capital. Painful, but understandable sarcasm. In recent times, sightings of families of wild pigs wandering around bins and markets have multiplied. There were even encounters with greedy quadrupeds in broad daylight. Yet wild boars are nocturnal animals. How is it possible? The biologist and president of the Bioparco di Roma explained it to us Francesco Petretti. “The wild boar is a nocturnal animal, its prevailing sense of smell is ten times that of the dog, but it is also an extremely adaptable animal: if it knows that garbage increases in daylight hours because people leave it when it is day certainly not waiting for the night “. Miracles of the Capital, an idea for a new spot by Virginia Raggi, other than streets: “We managed to change the circadian rhythm of wild boars”.
