Many hunters sell the boar as game, so the German government has to pay out compensation to the hunters whose animals must be destroyed. Given the current levels of radiation that are being detected, experts anticipate that the problem probably won’t go away for some time and it may even be another 50 years before the boar cool down to normal levels.

On the one hand, that article title is click bait in that it gives the impression that ALL boar pigs running around the Black Forest are radioactive, when it is just 1 in 3, according to the article.  That said, I love wild boar, so this kinda sucks.
