According to OutdoorRevival.com , in 2013 some campers were having a weekend of fun, bonfires, and drinking when they woke up during the night to find a pig finishing off 18 cans of their beer! No, we’re not making this up, it happened.
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.
It soon started exhibiting bad manners and loutish behaviour, including picking on a nearby cow. 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.
One stunned camper told ABC News, “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.”
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.”
Some curious campers who heard about the ruckus went to look for him the next morning and found him in the same spot and snapped this picture of him.
As funny as the story is, it unfortunately didn’t end well for the pig. It wasn’t long before he tried to cross the road, still buzzed and hungover, and got hit by a truck passing through. Witnesses later found out it was him because of the unique markings on his ear.
