I'm not sure how big this boar is but my wife and I would grab a hind leg and pull them backwards to move them, it is not pretty but seems to work. After getting a handful of pig patties a few times we switched methods. An old farmer told us to put a bucket or pale over their head and walk them backwards. Works well with two people, one pulls on the bucket (helps to have a handle) and the other pulls on the tail....again, not pretty but quite effective.

That is not to say I've never been outsmarted by a pig though, they are extremely bright, mine won a tug of war with the water hose as I was trying fill it water bucket and proceeded to turn the spray on me!! Not impressed although it was quite refreshing!!
