Throwback: Pig steals 18 beers, gets drunk, fights cow

Back in 2013, some campers learned the hard way what happens when you don’t secure your food and drink before going to sleep! After a day of fun and some drinks, they woke up to find a pig had gotten into the beer they had left out and finished off 18 cans. A neighboring campsite witnessed the theft.

“It was in the middle of the night, and it was these people opposite of us and I heard this crunching of the can, and they got their torch out and shined it on the pig and there he was, crunching away at their cans.”

Once caught over the legal limit, the pig ran off to dig through the trash for a snack and started a fight with a cow.

A lady named Merida who witnessed it 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 the scuffle, the pig went to sleep off the effects of the beer under a tree. Merida managed to snap a photo of the hungover swine.


Unfortunately, the story didn’t end well for the pig. He ended up getting hit by a truck while attempting to cross the road.

Let this be a cautionary tale; always secure your beer while you’re camping!
