I have read a bit about wild boars and what I learned wasn’t pretty. They are considered invasive in some areas of the US. They hang around with each other and so you might see a lot of them at one time.
To say that they are a garden pest is understating their ability to destroy just about anything in their path.
Wild boars are descended from domestic pigs.
A cautious note, don’t you ever be bothering them. Stay away.

The green areas show where they are considered to be native. The blue areas show where they were introduced. I do know that in the US, there are more areas where the wild boars live.
