Boars wreaking havoc on Oki pineapple farms

Date Posted: 2002-02-28

Wild boars have been causing an increasingly alarming amount of damage to pineapple farms this season in Takae, Higashi Village, eating the sprouts that would eventually have become fruit. According to farmer Yoshikichi Takaesu, although the animals have inflicted damage on the crop in the past, this year’s destruction is the worst he has seen in his 20 years of farming.

Farmers and officials are at their wits' end trying to figure out how to protect the pineapples from the hungry intruders.
