Here’s something you don’t hear every day, a feral pig went on a rampage at a Western Australian campsite after stealing and consuming 18 beers from campers, prompting warnings from people at campsites to secure their food and alcohol.
The thieving pig was last seen stealing not one but three six packs of beer from campers, ransacking garbage bags while at it. Piss-drunk, the pig then got involved in an altercation with a cow later that night. One witness says he saw the feral pig “guzzling a beer” before picking a fight with said cow.
Another witness came forward and in a statement, says, “In the middle of the night these people camping opposite us heard a noise, so they got their torch out and shone it on the pig and there he was, scrunching away at their cans.”
“Then he went and raided all the rubbish bags. There were some other people camped right on the river and they saw him being chased around their vehicle by a cow.”
Authorities report that the pig has been causing quite a ruckus in neighboring campsites, angrily pillaging for food and drinks days before the incident. Unsurprisingly, it was the first time locals heard of a feral pig guzzling three six packs then attempting to square off with a cow.
According to ABC, the misbehaving boar reportedly struck at the DeGrey River rest area, east of the remote Western Australian town of Port Hedland in the Pilbara.
After its antics, the feral pig in question was last seen nursing a hangover in a tree stump by the river.
Just like brown bears in the US, feral pigs have started checking out food and drinks from campers. In Australia, people are wary of feral pigs because they might carry diseases that could infect livestock. The local government has advised people to report sightings of feral pigs so they can be removed from the area.
