Shakira Attacked by Wild Boars in Barcelona

Pop singer Shakira said that two wild boars attacked her and destroyed her bag in a park in Barcelona, Spain.

The Colombian singer shared in a series of Instagram stories on Sep. 28 that a pair of wild boars tried to take her bag as she strolled with her son.

“Look how they left my bag, the two wild boars that attacked me in the park,” Shakira said in Spanish while showing her torn bag in one of the videos.

“They were taking my bag to the woods with my phone in it. They’ve destroyed everything,” Shakira added.

Attacks from aggressive boars have been increasing in European cities as the animals’ natural habitats are decimated by urban expansion.

Barcelona alone has fielded almost 1,200 calls regarding wild boars being disruptive in 2016, from looting houses and trash to holding up traffic.

In the recent weeks, a group of wild boars were seen roaming around the streets of Rome, Italy and mingling with the residents. In May, a group of hungry boars cornered an Italian woman and stole her groceries.
