A booze-stealing feral hog that is wreaking havoc in the Pilbara of Australia has prompted a reminder for travelers at campsites and rest stops to ensure their food and alcohol is secured.
Fionna Findley from Main Roads says the animal has caused a nuisance, ransacking bin bags left in the area by clean-up crews.
One camper named Merida recounted the tale told to her by fellow campers.
“It was in the middle of the night and it was these people camping opposite us and they heard this crunching of the can and they got their torch (flashlight) out and shone it on the pig and there he was scrunching away at their cans,” Merida said. “And then there was some other people camped right on the river and they saw him running around their vehicle being chased by a cow.
