Naked granddad chases wild boar after it ran off with his belongings

A trio of boars have made a bit of an arse of a grandfather after one of them stole a bag containing his laptop.

The unnamed man was pictured running after the mother and two of her offspring in front of crowds of people near Teufelssee Lake, Berlin.

Adele Landauer was one of those people who witnessed what happened and managed to get a series of pictures that she has shared with the world – and with the man’s permission.

She said: ‘She said: ‘I was in sitting on the grass when I saw a wild pig stealing pizza from somebody’s rucksack while they were having a swim. I thought it was really funny and I decided to grab my mobile phone and take a picture, I wanted to send it to my daughter in Los Angeles so she could show it to my granddaughter, who is aged two.

‘I don’t think she would have ever seen a wild pig and I wanted her to see what they were doing here in Germany.

‘Just as I picked up the phone though to take the image, suddenly another wild pig ran into view with its piglets following and carrying a yellow bag in its mouth.

‘It was being chased by a man who was as naked as the day he was born.

‘The wild pig had stolen the bag, probably hoping that there was some food inside, but there wasn’t, it contained the man’s laptop. But the pig didn’t know that and was determined to make it to the nearby woods.’

Adele explained how several people had lost rucksacks that had been taken into the woods by the pigs who then ransacked them looking for food – but it meant they lost their bags.

‘This man, however, was determined not to be a victim of the same thing,’ she added.

‘He was determined to get the bag back, because it had his laptop in it, and after chasing it around the grass, he then followed it into the woods instead of stopping at the edge.

‘Everyone was standing around wondering what would happen, and then suddenly the man emerged with his laptop, and everybody started cheering. It was a really great moment.’

He said: ‘I’m just happy that I got my laptop back.’

The Teufelssee Lake is a popular destination for Berliners and it also allows nude bathing, known locally as FKK, in common with many other lakes in different parts of Germany.

Wild boar are a growing problem in Berlin, and the Landesverband Berlin which is responsible for managing the issue admits it is difficult to bring it under control.

The wild pigs have no significant natural predators and spend a lot of time digging up the soil damaging local flora and also regularly stage raids into built-up areas.

Adele added that as a life coach, it had been a great lesson as well in the importance of being focused.

She said you need to have a clear objective and go where you want to, and the man was focused and determined not to become a victim.

She said: ‘He fought back and he is a hero. This is the sort of thing I try and teach people all the time in my life coaching: don’t moan about your circumstances, do something about it – stay focused on your goals!’
