Regional authorities will permit the hunting of the wild boars which inhabit Bratislava’s neighbouring forests in the Karlova Ves borough in the Little Carpathians.

"The goal is not hunting for hunting's sake, but to reduce the excessive number of wild boars which are causing damage, especially to property and gardens,” said Marek Páva from the Bratislava forest company Mestské Lesy v Bratislave, the organisation in charge of hunting wild boar, as cited by the TASR newswire. “In addition, we are trying to prevent the wild boars from penetrating the housing estate.”

Hunters are permitted to hunt the boars in zones close to the forest, i.e. along the Púpavova, Veternicova, Hlaváčikova, Staré Grunty, Kuklovská and Líščie Údolie roads.
