Hello, i introduced a boar to my other boar today, and i am having the same issue. They were fine until they were in the same cage and started rumbling, and then the (freshly cleaned) cage reeked of this funky, musty odor. i have read it is marking and can also be "boar glue" - basically their seminal fluid that they can shoot when marking territory or humping. Thinking about giving them another bath, cleaning the cage and leaving a few things "scented" so this will not happen again.
