Dukes alone retain hunting privileges
An unusually large wild boar was making the area around Urach unsafe in the early 16th century. It was tearing up fields and destroying crops. Since only the sovereign had hunting privileges, the harassed farmers turned to Duke Ulrich. They begged him to come to their aid and bring an end to the animal's terror. The duke finally set out with a hunting party to slay the animal and safeguard his region from further disaster.
