Roaming bands of wild boars are becoming a common sight in the city of Rome, Italy, where families of the beasts trot down the streets scavenging for food in trash collection bins. 

The boars have populated the extensive parks of Lazio, the region surrounding Rome, which estimates boar numbers in the parks up to 6,000.

There are over 2 million wild boars in the country, according to Italy’s main agriculture lobby.
