A booze-pilfering drunken feral pig has caused chaos by running amok at an Australian campsite and starting a fight with a cow.
That’s exactly what happened in Australia in 2013, when a pig, a wild pig that is, got into the sauce, got drunk and started a fight with a barnyard buddy – a cow.
It all started when some careless campers left out their supply of hooch – 18 cans of beer, to be precise – and the errant pig decided to help himself to the sudsy stash.
The campers at Port Hedland, near the DeGrey River, were tucked away in their tents for the night when, the next thing they knew, the feral porker was snout-deep into their beer.
One stunned camper told, “It was in the middle of the night, and it was these people opposite us (who) heard this crunching of the can, and they got their torch out and shone it on the pig and there he was, crunching away at their cans.”
It soon started exhibiting bad manners and loutish behaviour, including picking on a nearby cow.
Furthermore, the witness to these porcine shenanigans named Merida said, “Then he went and raided their rubbish…then there were some other people camped right on the edge of the river, and they saw him running around their vehicle being chased by a cow. Apparently, the pig showed up several nights in a row, causing chaos and helping himself to anything he could find to “pig out” on.”
After slurping down the liquid gold, this little piggy went to the garbage bins and began rooting around for a late night snack.
When he was finally finished boozing it up, eating, and generally causing pandemonium at the campsite, he took a dip in the river and then passed out for a post-gorge snooze under a nearby tree.
Unfortunately, the pig came to an inglorious end not long after his drunken outburst at the campground. A roadwork employee confirmed that he had been found dead, the victim of a collision with a vehicle.
The worker was sure it was because of the unusual markings he had on his ears.
