Pop star Shakira was attacked by wild boars while walking with her son Milan in a park in Barcelona.
Catalan broadcaster RAC1 posted a video on Instagram by Shakira. “They attacked me in the park and ran away on the phone with my bag,” says the Colombian, holding a tattered, dirty black bag on camera.
Shakira talks about the wild boar attack in Barcelona
“In the end, they left the bag,” she adds. She tells her son, “Milan, tell the truth, how your mother encountered wild boars.” The two were apparently uninjured. The video is no longer on Shakira’s Instagram account on Thursday, as it can only be viewed there for 24 hours.
In Barcelona, as in other large cities, wild boars dare to venture further into the city. Although it is forbidden, some people feed it. “Animals are very smart and when they see someone carrying a bag they think there is food,” game director Tony Galliano recently told Hunter magazine after a man in Barclayna was attacked and bitten by a wild boar.
