Neighbours of multi-millionaire Ben Goldsmith have long suspected he was responsible for the sudden appearance of wild boar in his fashionable corner of the West Country.

Goldsmith has shaken things up since deciding to 'rewild' his £3.8 million estate in deepest Somerset, attracting beavers, boar and deer to the sleepy, rolling countryside — and as I revealed earlier this year, he recently bought a pair of wildcats.

Though the nature campaigner and financier strenuously denies ever releasing boar, insisting they are content to trample around his grounds, I can reveal that he has bred some feral pigs. 

He plans to give them out to his friends who are 'rewilding' their estates.
