Hi Joel,
The article does not state that Cs-137 levels are increasing in boars, only that the total boar population has grown greatly for a number of reasons, and accordingly that more contaminated boars are turning up. The larger numbers of boars in the wild, the fact that there is probably more effort to measure the potential contamination from Cs-137 in boars, and the fact Germany is paying a handsome price for contaminated boar meat [ Cs-137 > 600 Bq/kg]  to keep it from being consumed, adds up to there being many more contaminated boars being found.

Interesting why the Cs-137 levels are peaking now in game meat...
