365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 170: the Boar of Everholt


The Boar of the Firienwood (located on the borders of Rohan and Gondor) was considered both a worthy and daunting prey for any huntsman. When the King Walda of Rohan was slain by Orcs, his son Folca vowed not to pursue any wild beasts until all the Orcs had been exterminated. After this task was completed, Folca rode to hunt the Boar of Everholt; though he slew the beast, he later died as a result of a tusk wound given to him by the boar.
