A German man is getting a hero’s treatment from social media after chasing down a wild boar that tried running away with his laptop. A bystander managed to capture photos of the man as he ran after the culprit.
Life coach Adele Landauer documented the event on Instagram. She writes that the incident occurred near a lake in Berlin, Germany. “Yesterday at the lake in Berlin I saw a real hero,” she begins the caption.
In the post, Landauer shared three photos of the nude man in pursuit. However, she used emojis to censor his private parts.
Wild Boar Wants “Dessert” After Finding Food
“A female wild boar with two babies came out of the forest in order to search for food,” Landauer writes. “In Berlin we are free people – we love to bathe in the sun and lake like we are born. So, there were many people laying on their towels completely naked.”
Landauer says the wild boar found success in locating food on the premises. “After [the wild boar and its babies] ate a pizza from a backpack of a man who was taking a swim in the lake they were looking for a dessert,” she writes.
The wild boar then spotted the man’s yellow bag and began to run away with it. However, the bag’s owner soon realized those were his belongings in the animal’s mouth. “So, he was very focused and run behind the boars in order to get it back.”
After managing to retrieve his bag, Landauer says onlookers gave him a round of applause. “Everyone of us adored him how focused he stayed and when he came back with his yellow bag in the hand we all clapped and congratulated him for his success,” she writes.
In just a few days after sharing the story, the post racked up thousands of likes. This wasn’t the only bizarre animal encounter in recent weeks. Read more here.
