Life span

There seem to be few observations of lifespan in the wild and reports vary widely from eight to 25 years. The University of Michigan Zoology Museum says wild boar live to a maximum of nine to ten years and many die by two years (38); others state most dying at four to five years. It also states that sport hunting by humans is a major pressure (38). Boars in captivity have lived for 20 to 27 years.
