You've brought up a very good question that had never occurred to me but now can't wait to find the truth. I really like the food cooked up by relatives near Huma LA. and like you I've learned not to ask what it is. I have been around domestic hogs since I was born and one thing everyone I know agrees on is boar meat is nearly uneatable. The odor while cooking is enough to make you sick and that applies to young ones not even of breeding age. I wounder if cajuns forgo cooking domestic boar or if they know how to deal with it. I had always left wild boars for coyotes and buzzards until my brother-in-law asked me to help him take the backstrap from one I trapped on his place. About 375 pounds with knockers big as my fists. He explained that Eurasians are different but I had my doubts until I ate some of it. If there isn't enough young gilt meat when i want meat I no longer hesitate dressing a boar. We take as many backstraps as practical and occasionally whole roast one like op caught. Looking at the two side beside one would think the Russian Boar would be the one that stank.Scardychicken.... If there are feral hogs in BC I would expect it to be the lowest of the lower mainland.. ?? Also, yes, my red neck, Cajun, swamp savage Gulf coast cousins say it is VERY good eating... But at times they are not very picky what they cook up.... Best not to question what is in the pot at times.. Maybe that is why they use so much hot sauce... eh...
