Whooly pigs on the Puszta

Today Adam and me went to the Kecskeri-puszta. On this grassland habitat we observed many bird species, but the best record was the 11 whooly pigs on the puszta. The 3 older pig looked after the 8 piglets. I think these animals run away from a farm and they began a new life here on the puszta. They feed on plants, fruits and sometimes small animals as well.
