Italy is a wonderland! What you will not see here. But residents of the capital recently encountered a real wild boar ... in public transport. Judging by the photo in which the animal is captured, it traveled in a tram near Trastevere.
The image of the black pig instantly scattered across the Web, making him a celebrity. Fortunately for the townspeople, the animal was on a leash, just its owner decided to walk his pet in the very center of Rome.
The photographs that were published in local newspapers caused readers not only surprise, but also some doubts about its reliability.
However, those who have kindly provided unique pictures claim that they were not manipulated in Photoshop.
Environmental researcher Barbard Franzetti did not dare to confirm that the photo shows a real wild boar. “This is definitely not a wild boar, this is a Thai pig. In the 1990s, George Clooney also hit the front pages of newspapers after he walked around like a pig. And it seems to have become fashionable, ”suggested Franzetti. The researcher also said that it is impossible to keep a wild boar on a leash only if it has not been domesticated from birth.
By the way, this is not the first appearance of wild animals in public transport, accompanied by the owners. At the end of last year, a company of tipsy adventurers stole a llama from a French circus.
After alcohol marathon in the club young people did not come up with anything better than stealing an eight-year-old animal named Serge. Good kidnappers gladly arranged a city tour for Serge and even took him on a tram. The driver himself informed about the llama in the vehicle, however, the arrived police officers did not immediately manage to detain the attackers. But drunken criminals soon got tired of messing with their new friend.
They left him at the pillar and hid urgently. The main character of the night story in the morning was returned to the place.
The director of the circus complained about the misbehavior of the youth, explaining that the abduction of the llama almost led to the escape of a zebra, which slipped away from its pen and did not allow itself to be caught.
Another funny story is related to drunken rowdy from Sweden. But this time were drunk hooligans ... moose. In August last year, a resident of the suburb of Stockholm could not get into his own house, because he was blocked by inadequate animals. The man decided not to risk it and called the police to drive out uninvited guests. By the way, a police spokesman said that such treatment was quite normal in late August.
Drunk moose become very dangerous. They cease to perceive a person as a threat and can easily attack him.
As it turned out, four moose and cub accidentally wandered into the Swede's garden and ate rotten apples that were lying on the ground. Fallen fruits also caused intoxication in animals. Later, the police managed to expel the forest guards, and they retired in search of a new place for a feast.
