By his pioneering observations of wild boar Heinz Meynhardt, a hobby biologist, has not only turned into a luminary of GDR biology but also into a well-known figure in public TV. In the 10-episodes-serial Wildschweingeschichten / Boar Story he tells about his experiences with a horde of wild boar. This episode shows how tusker Emil from Meynhardt’s horde has been captured and put into the zoo and there founds a new horde with wild sow Emma.
