A feral pig ransacked a campsite and drank at least 18 cans cans of beer before getting into an altercation with a cow in Australia.
The incident, which happened in a remote area of Western Australia at the DeGray River rest area, prompted officials to warn campers to keep their food and alcohol secure.
The wild pig was seen around the campsite for several days last week, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) reported, citing officials who said the animal got into multiple six-packs of beer over the course of a few days.
Fionna Findley, from the government highway division Main Roads, told ABC that the people camping overnight at the rest area said that "the pig stole their beers, drank them and then afterwards proceeded to tear apart the bin liners."
"We just want to remind everyone when you do pull over, make sure [your food and alcohol] is securely stored because there are a lot of animals out there that are keen for a free feed."
One camper who reportedly spoke with the affected campers told ABC that the pig got into 18 beers, ransacked the campsite's garbage bins and got into a fight with a cow.
The camper, who was only identified as Merida, said "there was some other people camped right on the river and they saw him running around their vehicle being chased by a cow.
"It was going around and around and then it went into the river and swam across to the middle of the river."

I read the headline and thought I knew her.
“Reminds me of a White House party.”
Reminds me of one of my in-laws.
Drunken swine ... are we sure we aren’t talking about Aussie Rules Football? (Spectators not players - until after the game!)
At first I thought this might be a Mel Gibson-Rosie O’Donnell story.
LOL thanks for the laugh
“And you are a chauvinist PIG!”
That's usually how these things start. Don't blame it on the beer!
How did the pig open the cans of beer? Oh don’t tell me - he had a can opener.
FOSTERS; Australian for drunk pig
I saw this on an episode of Divorce Court.
The pig’s actions are clearly a cry for help.
Yes, that porker needs an intervention. Possibly involving a brown-sugar barbeque sauce.
And he comes self-marinated.
Apparently this pig makes a nasty drunk.
Makes Laz hot.
We’ve all been there.
