BERLIN — A cow herd in Germany has gained an unlikely following, after adopting a lone wild boar piglet.
Farmer Friedrich Stapel instructed the dpa information company that he noticed the piglet among the many herd within the central German neighborhood of Brevoerde about three weeks in the past. It had possible misplaced its group once they crossed a close-by river.
Stapel mentioned whereas he is aware of what intensive injury wild boars may cause, he cannot convey himself to chase the animal away, dpa reported Thursday.
The native hunter has been instructed to not shoot the piglet — nicknamed Frieda — and in winter Stapel plans to place it within the shed with the mom cows.
“To go away it alone now could be unfair,” he instructed dpa.
