Latin pop singer Shakira and her eight-year-old son faced a close call when the two were attacked by wild boars at a park in Barcelona, Spain. Luckily, the singer and her son were left unharmed by the wild animals that seemed most interested in Sharika’s purse.
Fox News reports:
“They’ve destroyed everything,” fumed the 44-year-old Grammy-winner of the pilfering pigs, which attacked her while she was at an unnamed park in Barcelona with her 8-year-old son Milan Pique Mebarak, the Daily Mail reported. Shakira — whose full name is Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll — didn’t disclose when the incident occurred.
“Look at how two wild boar which attacked me in the park have left my bag,” lamented the “She Wolf” songstress to her 70.7 million ‘Gram followers. “They were taking my bag to the woods with my mobile phone in it.”
However, it appears that the singer didn’t relinquish her belongings to the bacon-y bling ring without a fight. “Milan tell the truth,” Shakira said to her son, who is shown walking to the bathroom. “Say how your mummy stood up to the wild boar.”
Thankfully, neither the singer nor her son appear to have been injured by the porcine purse-snatchers. She should thank her lucky stars: male wild boars, which weigh 180 pounds on average, are known to be extremely aggressive and can inflict grievous wounds with their sharp tusks.
Recently, the boars have become a more common pest across Europe, often pillaging local parks.
