BERLIN (AP) — A herd of cows in Germany has gained an unlikely following — after adopting a lone boar piglet.
Farmer Friedrich Stapel told the news agency dpa that he noticed the piglet among the herd in the central German community of Brewoerde about three weeks ago. He probably lost his group when they were crossing a nearby river.
Stapel said that although he knows how much damage wild animals can cause, he cannot bring himself to chase the animal away, dpa reported on Thursday.
A local hunter ordered not to shoot the piglet – nicknamed Frida – and for the winter Stapel plans to put it in a barn with mother cows.
“To leave it now would be unfair,” he told dpa.
Here’s a roundup of some of the weirdest news from the past week.
