IT was only last week that I was writing about la chasse and how they played a role in the countryside and whether it would change.
One task they undertake is to try and control the sanglier, or wild boar, as they can do real damage to the crops and in the local football team's case the pitch.
A few days ago a number of sanglier dug up around 200 square metres of the pitch at Saint-Cernin-de-l'Herm, covering a corner and part of the goal area resulting in it needing reseeding.
The sanglier were digging for worms under the surface of the pitch, fortunately the teams at St Cernin have a second pitch to play on as it is likely to require a good few weeks for the pitch to get back to a playable condition.
And a low electric fence has been installed to try and keep at bay any future pitch invasions.
