'Boared' piggy goes to bank in Austria

Associated Press SHARE

VIENNA (AP) — Piggy bank has a new meaning in a town east of Vienna after a surveillance camera caught a wild pig on a night foray to a local branch of one of Austria's financial institutions.

The Austria Press Agency reports that the inquisitive porker managed to push open a locked sliding glass door of a bank in Hainburg an der Donau to make its way inside. After looking around, it left the same way it came without causing significant damage, with the door locking behind it.

APA, in its report Wednesday, said bank officials became suspicious last month after a member of the early morning cleaning staff noticed large smear marks on the door. A review of surveillance footage identified the unusual visitor.
