Pig in Australia Steals 18 Beers from Campers, Gets Drunk, Fights Cow
Forget crocodiles and snakes, the real animal threat in Australia is wild pigs. At least if you’re camping.
At a campground in Western Australia over the weekend, a feral pig guzzled down 18 beers that had been left out improperly secured. And just like anyone 18 beers in at a rural dive bar, the pig got big-headed and decided to start a fight with a cow, resulting in the cow chasing the pig around a car.
“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,” said a visitor.
The pig was later reported sleeping his hangover (and shame of trying to take down a cow?) off under a tree.
