One of the first things which i encounted when i arrived here in Islamabad was the wildlife, or more specifically, a pack of wild boars! Four adults with about six to eight kid boars milling about, running wildly in front of the car!

I’d heard a lot about them from my friends who lived in Islamabad before, but to see them with your own two eyes is really an experience. The most wildlife we encounter in Karachi are stray dogs, or if you go visit the naval cantonments, squirrels!

I’ve heard there are foxes here too! Wouldnt mind seeing them too, though from the safety of inside a car mind you.
