1940 catalogue description
- " These animals are found all over Europe, Asia, Japan and Northern Africa, and in certain parts of America and the WestIndies. They are powerful fighters and it is a astonishing fact that they can sustain extremely heavy injuries without loss of life. They are, of course, closely allied to the domesticated pig. "
