A feral pig in Western Australia recently went on an unbelievable bender, snatching six-packs away from campers in Port Hedland and engaging in a night of drunken debauchery usually reserved for former Disney stars. (Just call it Babe: The Miley Years.)
The pig gulped down a frat party-worthy amount of booze before rifling through trash bags in search of a midnight snack. Don’t lie; you can totally relate:
One camper reported seeing the pig guzzling the beer before getting involved in an altercation with a cow.
“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 the visitor, who estimated that the pig had consumed 18 beers.
“There were some other people camped right on the river and they saw him being chased around their vehicle by a cow.”
The pig was reportedly last seen resting under a tree, possibly nursing a hangover.
Like your drunken pal, the feral pig’s antics are amusing, but ultimately it’s trouble. Feral pigs spread diseases to cattle and destroy crops. (I bet that cow totally had it coming, though.)
