    I am looking for stories related to pigs/boars to coincide with the Year of the Pig in Feb 2019. Any ideas welcomed. Need not be Asian though that would be a bonus.

     Hi Kiran, 

    I realised i didn't know any stories  with pigs except The 3 Liittle Pigs and none with boars.  But I searched and found this Japanese one. 

    www.worldoftales.com/Asian_folktales/Japanese_folktale_18.html

    I  do rememer Richard Martin (www.tellatale.eu) telling me he was working on  a European tale about the Blue Boars some years ago. You could contact him. 

    And guess what!  When I  went to look at his webpage, the first thing I saw was a video recording ....

    Pig with the Wooden Leg

     http://tellatale.eu/tales_pig_leg.html

    Best of luck with finding more.

    Cheers,

    Sheila
