Police in Port Hedland, Western Australia, are reportedly searching for a pig that broke into a camping couple’s cooler during the night and drank 18 of their beers. He may be irritable, hungover and probably has a pounding headache.

According a fellow camper, the couple in question first became aware of the pig when it woke them during the night, “It was in the middle of the night and it was these people camping opposite us and they heard this crunching of the can and they got their torch out and shone it on the pig and there he was scrunching away at their cans.”

By then the pig was reportedly sloppy drunk and soon became disorderly. He went on an alcohol-fueled rampage attempting to pick a fight with a cow, getting chased by the cow, becoming hot and finally going skinny dipping in the river. The bender ended with the pig dragging his carcass ashore and passing out.

The unidentified pig is wanted by police, who believe that ”It was last seen near the river itself, under a tree,” and “it’s nursing its head today.”
