An increase in wild boars has upturned the balance on a small island in the Genkai Sea, with the animals outnumbering residents three-to-one.

Over 300 boars are now living on the 2.8-sq.-km Kakara Island, which lies off the coast of Saga prefecture.

While there have been no injuries so far, "People will be forced off the island if the current situation continues," said a resident of the islet, population 100.
