 Boar n.  Zool. The uncastrated male of swine; specifically, the wild hog.
 

From: WordNet (r) 2.0

 boar
      n 1: Old World wild swine having a narrow body and prominent
           tusks from which most domestic swine come; introduced in
           United States [syn: wild boar, Sus scrofa]
      2: an uncastrated male hog

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Boar
    occurs only in Ps. 80:13. The same Hebrew word is elsewhere
    rendered "swine" (Lev. 11:7; Deut. 14:8; Prov. 11:22; Isa. 65:4;
    66:3, 17). The Hebrews abhorred swine's flesh, and accordingly
    none of these animals were reared, except in the district beyond
    the Sea of Galilee. In the psalm quoted above the powers that
    destroyed the Jewish nation are compared to wild boars and wild
    beasts of the field.
