Summary: There is no apparent huntable population of wild boar in Connecticut at this time. The conditions are cold, and not so conducive to a feral pig population. When contacting the Connecticut DEP (Department of Energy and Environmental Protection), there has been no response. An article in the Norwich Bulletin by Alison Shea in April 2011, points to a possible feral pig population starting near Thompson HighSchool in North Grossvenordale.
Judging by the above photograph, it is apparent that this was once a domesticated hog, turned feral. The hog is fattened up, with a curved snout, short hair, and has “listing” around its hooves. A true wild boar would be lean, with bristled hair, and a straight snout. Regardless of the way the hog came to be feral, it is just as explosive if it were to have a sow to reproduce.
