Feral Alcoholic Fighting Pig Meets His End

Feral Alcoholic Fighting Pig Meets His End

Feral Alcoholic Fighting Pig Meets His End
06 October 2013

Tragic news reaches us here at ShortList: the feral Australian pig who found fame after a drunken rampage on a campsite has died.

'Swino', as he was nicknamed by the local authorities in northern Pilbara, in Western Australia, was hit by a passing vehicle on a remote stretch of road, with fatal consequences.

The plucky pig hit the news when he stole, and then drank, 18 pints of lager on a campsite in Port Hedland, before stealing food and starting a fight with a cow.

The pig was apparently identified by distinctive marking on the back of his ears. No foul play was suspected.

Swino: he lived fast and died young, and never missed a chance to hog the headlines.
