Obviously, not enough people in Rome own spears or javelins anymore.

And Decius Metellus the Younger* would be really pissed at what's happened to his city.
Wild boar are taking over Rome, attracted to the Italian capital by mounds of rotting rubbish.

That’s the claim of increasingly angry residents frustrated by mayor Virginia Raggi’s apparent inability to organize efficient refuse collections.

In March, a 49-year-old man was killed when his scooter crashed into a hungry boar prowling the city’s streets. Last month a family of boar invaded an elementary school’s garden hunting for food. And a massive boar was recently caught on video running in traffic near the Vatican.

Obviously no really hungry folks live in Rome. We'd be lighting the fire while Jr hauls off the guts.

Sounds like a solution masking as a problem. The boars were originally imported as hunting stock, and escaped. From what I understand, some of them were Russian stock that can get up to 1500 lbs. Italy has a bunch of camps full of Muslim "refugees" who are surprisingly almost all military age males. They already have, I would assume, fences surrounding them. Create a zone 100 yards outside those fences, and surround the outer perimeter with a truly secure cross between a fence and a wall.

Live trap any of the loose boars you can find/bait/trap [trank darts might be helpful] and place them between the outer wall and the inner fence. Boar problem solved. Security problem in camps solved with escapes being unlikely.

And it sends a message.
