    I was going to say, she could actually face charges for not contacting the MNR as soon as she knew it was loose.

    Keep an eye on your "pet" if you dont want it to get shot.

    He did exactly as MNRF asked him to do.

    I totally agree that if anyone faces charges it will be the "pet" owner for the thing getting loose! Who in their right mind would think a wild bore is someones pet in an area that the MNR has said to shoot them or in any area for that matter...................who has wild bores for pets??????
    I love fishing but REALLY it is just a way to pass time until hunting season!!!!

    Many years ago we deer hunted with "old man Cameron" north of Coe Hill. He lived at the end of the road just past Egan Creek and ran cows and pigs. The cows would come to the barn, the hogs would go where they liked but not out of 30-30 range. By putting out a bit of pig food he could shoot them as needed...

    Update:

    Turns out the ridiculous rules about home butchering resolved this quickly;


    Tug-of-war over shot wild boar's body


    Thomas Blair now plans to keep the meat he got after butchering Big Boy, a 450-pound wild boar Donna Lampron had kept as a pet for for seven years at her ranch between Ottawa and Cornwall.

    Blair killed it with a hunting rifle after it showed up Monday at his Moose Creek property, about 10 km away.

    After some online research into the rules for butchering animals, Blair feels he can't legally return the meat, his father Peter Blair told the Sun.

    "The pig was butchered at home. It wasn't butchered by a registered butcher. By law, the meat cannot be distributed," Peter Blair said.

    But Donna Lampron, who kept Big Boy as a pet for seven years at her ranch between Ottawa and Cornwall, said she doesn't think Blair has any right to keep the meat, which she wants so she can donate it to a Cornwall soup kitchen.

    "I don't think they have any right to keep the meat," she said Saturday.

    That woman is out of her mind. No right to keep the meat? Ha! Who does she think she is?

    Here is the deal. He is exactly right in the context that the meat cannot leave his property. In accordance with the Ontario Food Safety Act the meat in question lacking a post and ante mortem inspection cannot be shared, sold or otherwise traded.
    Anyone remember Mark Tijssen? ... just 40 lbs of pork in an action where two people agreed to and purchased a domestic pig together. He eventually beat them in court but the MNR has the province as a resource and they will engage in malicious prosecution.

    If I was Mr Blair I would simply stop answering the phone and get back to smoking pork!

    I am still surprised that MNR has not been asking how long Big Boy was loose before being reported. To my recollection there is a requirement to report a loss of a wild boar immediately.
    There is room for all God's creatures - right next to the mashed potatoes!

    If it is a domestic animal as claimed then home slaughter it cannot leave his property and cannot legally be donated, if it is a wild animal then it would be able to be given away.

    Nice for this guy to catch them legally once again, lock up your livestock and notify the authorities if they get away as required by law, this person is nuts.
