Shakira Learns Wild Boar a Problem ‘Whenever, Wherever’

Pop star posts on Instagram about being ‘attacked’ by wild pigs in Barcelona

Pop star Shakira posted on Instagram recently about being ‘attacked’ by wild pigs in Barcelona, showing the widespread problem of the porcine pests.

Maybe she can raise awareness of the problem of wild boar.

According to reports, the Colombian singer was recently “attacked” in Barcelona by two wild boar who also stole her bag, which was later recovered.

The BBC reports that the wild boar population in Europe is estimated to be more than 10 million. In cities, they disrupt traffic, attack small animals and rummage through trash.

To anyone in the animal health and agriculture industry, this should set off all kinds of alarm bells. With African swine fever (ASF) spreading through Europe and threatening the continent’s pork industry, this is a major biosecurity problem.
