Sunbathers in a Berlin park were left bemused recently after an elderly man bolted naked to chase after a wild pig, which had made away with his laptop, the Independent reports.
The animal was seen running through the park carrying a bag in its mouth. It was later established that the bag had a laptop in it.
The owner of the computer followed close behind, having been disturbed from a naked sunbathing session.
Photos of the incident went viral on social media after Adele Landauer, a Berlin resident, who was at the park, posted them on networking site, Facebook.
According to Landauer, the park had tens of sunbathers, when the singular of wild pigs emerged from a nearby thicket.
While the man was bathing, she said, the boars calmly ate a pizza from his bag and then went “looking for a dessert”.
“They found this yellow bag and decided to take it away. But the man who owned it realised it was the bag with his laptop. So, he was very focused and ran behind the boars in order to get it back.”
Landauer said when she showed her photos to the man he was very amused and gave her his blessing to share them publicly, the Independent reports.
Landauer, an actor and life coach, said this incident was a good example of someone persevering to achieve their goal.
Germany is famed for naturism; it is common for sunbathers and swimmers to strip off in the warmer months and many beaches and public parks permit nudity as part of Freikorperkultur, which translates to “free body culture”.
