Atomic wild boars of Japan

https://www.theatlantic.com/photo/20...ushima/519066/

They are flourishing in the areas evacuated near the reactor. Take a look at the airgun down the images for the one used to kill the trapped boars.

Wonder what it is?

Wow, first we had (and still have) Chernobyl boar, and now Japanese boar with the same issue. Sheesh.

It probably isn't any bigger than 30 caliber. Bigger tank equals more shots. Probably not a ton but maybe 10.

People say that cockroaches will own the world after people; my money is on boars.

Looks like a Daystate rifle to me at a glance. High quality piece of kit.

As to the boars we all know how this ends.
