You don’t mess with a boar. You just don’t. Doubly so goes for the boar’s family, because everyone has everyone’s back. We know this s true, not just because Asterix and Princess Mononoke taught us so, but because hey, family is family. Hey, humans aren’t the only ones with a concept of family, y’know.
Take this image, for example.

Look at it. Just look at it. If that’s not family, I don’t know what is.
An entire herd of boars came by to watch and ensure their son was freed. What was going on in their minds? “We’re here for you?” “Well done, human; now give us back our own, and you shall come to no harm”? Or perhaps if things had gotten more violent, this family might have gone the way of the Okkotonushi.

Even the kodama agree with Ohana — Family means no one gets left behind.
