    Good one SBF.

    NR, with respect you are not at that much of a distance from the Boar and I bet it runs much faster than you.
    No, but what you can't see is I was far closer to a car with doors ajar. I could have got in there if I'd seen him moving. Anyway, TD members demand their pics!

    Nice stories everyone, particularly Jettie & Loy Toy.

    Ok, a story of a mate in Phuket many years ago.

    He had a pet gibbon that would ride around everywhere with him on his motorbike and when anyone yelled out my freinds name, the monkey would 'whoop whoop whoop' louder and louder with each call.

    My friend, lets call him Jack, was in a bar and chatting to a farang couple, husband and wife I believe and the discussion came around that the couple kind of liked swapping partners from time to time and the gent was looking at a very cute thai girl that he wanted to shag.

    The only problem he said was that Jack would have to take his wife and shag her. Jack agreed. They all toddled off to their hotel for an evening of sex.

    Later that evening Jacks then wife came looking for him, thinking something was suspicous she went looking for him around all the hotles and bars asking if anyone had seen a guy and a monkey on a bike.

    She got lucky at a certain hotel and when they were not in the bar, she went around the hotel from floor to floor yelling out 'Jack' as loud as she could.

    All of a sudden she could hear a muffled 'whoop whoop' and she climbed the stairs to higher floors yelling 'Jack jack' as she climbed, the 'whoop whoop got louder until she walked past a door and it was as clear as a bell.

    She knocked on the door and found the monkey sitting on the bedside table and Jack and the other guys wife out on the balcony shagging away.

    "No, but what you can't see is I was far closer to a car with doors ajar. I could have got in there if I'd seen him moving."

    Good job. I've met these beasts in Northern Italy and in the bush in NT, Aus. They can be amazingly territorial and aggressive. You've got a male there which should be reasonably placid. The females, particularly sows with young are very dangerous and without fear. Hence comment earlier about "the family turning up".
    They also tend to carry every infestation known. My dogs took one on once. I managed to get the dogs out unharmed but they were carrying all kinds of nasties.
    Then again I'm sure you know what you're doing.
    Cheers

    I experienced one today. A family of wild boar have a home somewhere in the hills near our dog centre. I've only seen them once before, but as we (a volunteer & I) drove up today, there was a pretty large juvenile male boar walking past us. We both cursed the fact that neither of us had a camera & went to work. We often get leftovers from the Hilton Resort here in HH, and we had some today. I mixed them with dry dog food & started to feed the dogs who live outside the compound. As usual a lot of Tessadban Pound dogs came & started stealing the food, so when I heard a commotion, I expected it to be the usual kerfuffle between our dogs & theirs'.
    Not a bit of it. The boar, smelling the food had decided it was worth the risk of about 40 dogs and was muscling in on the food. Amused, I dealt him his own serving. He stood there, unfazed by the dogs and us watching him and leisurely ate every scrap. I got half a dozen great pics of him on my phone, but have no idea how to upload them. Anyway, when finished, he ambled off.

    It was a fantastic moment which I would never have experienced in UK. Anyone else got a 'never in my home country, but definitely here' moment to share?
    NR, what exactly was so fantastic about it?

    well, it aint actually my story, but my xwife taught in the Republic of Kiribati in the central pacific for a year, she would quite often be able to look outside the classroom window to see dolphins playing in the surf barely 100 metres away.

    pretty fantastic I think. I went to vist one time, tiny little group of coral atolls.

    I wouldn't claim that for a second. I've never been that close to one of them before. I did register that he could do me a lot of harm & I never touch or get too close to any wild animals as a rule. It was probably extremely stupid of me to get close enough to him to feed him. However, it was an experience I've never had before & probably will never have again. It's only the second time I've even seen them.
    Let's face it, it's dangerous to ride a motorbike without full protective gear & dangerous to drive a car whilst drunk, but I bet the vast majority of members have done one or both of those. We're all stupid or thoughtless of safety, sometimes.

    What, wild boars? They are roaming through Berlin suburbs.

    I have seen them first time when I was a small kid and my grand parents took me to the forest in the city.

    saw a few in Turkey but you are right, it's a wonderful experience to see wild things because there is nothing of that kind in the uk.

    i salivate over the snakes we get in my new garden, my wife thinks I'm off my box.

    Yeah, but even deer are difficult to spot unless you're on somebody's estate (I mean aristocracy, not council!) We really don't have many wild animals that we see often. Birds, squirrels, rabbits, hedgehogs - that's about it. Oh, and foxes - but I even got excited about them. I've never even seen a badger or snake in the wild in UK.

    They are actually called French tourists and are part of the human race, supposedly.

    Hmmm NR, when I was in Scotland mapping for geology, it started to rain heavily so I sheltered next to a rock with my cape over my head, just my face out

    a herd of red deer, probably also looking for shelter, turned up and stood around, less then 10m away from me; they never noticed me as the wind was from them (stinky lot)

    they were big beasties
    I have reported your post

    A few weeks back I was riding back from Doi Saket and looking over my right shoulder to see what was behind me in order to pull across two lanes safely to go down my soi,I came close to having a head on with a baby elephant ploding the wrong way up the highway.No lights on it not even an old CD dangaling from it.They could have straped a torch to its head or something.
    Can't see that happening to me now on the South coast of England.

    Hmmm, I suppose if it's in the privacy of your own garden it's ok, just be sure to wipe them clean after.

    Anyway, i found you a better ride....
