Is boar meat accepted in Europe and the rest of the world?

The attitude towards boar meat ranges from full acceptance to strong resistance. In general, in countries in which animal welfare and sustainability are important, the acceptance of boar meat is higher. At the same time there are markets which have an emotional resistance to boar meat, because boars were castrated for decades as a standard procedure by the assumption thus preventing boar taint. It requires a lot of communication efforts and substantiated scientific research to refute this prejudice.
