Traveling along Corsican roads from along the sea to the high mountains, you won't go far without running into fellow travelers of the furry kind. I'm not talking about the legendary hikers who might have not bathed in a few weeks, rather the wandering animals that are not necessarily 'wild', but prefer their cuisine free-range as they climb roads and cliffs in their search for the sweetest grasses and leaves of the maquis. Even when appearing miles from nowhere, most wanderers make it home for nightfall.

Of the truly wild animals of Corsica, one of the most sought after is the wild boar, or sanglier. While a menace to country gardens, it is prized by hunters and cooks alike for a flavorful meat served in Corsican stews. While not usually visible in villages, some local shops display sanglier heads mounted as trophys.
