Some pig.

One camper reported seeing the pig guzzling the beer before getting involved in an altercation with a cow.

Oh Australia, how you delight me.

Any night that ends up with you being chased by a cow is a good one.

I don't believe any of that story. Why would a pig take cans and how did it get them open. Are they trying to tell me a pig bit open 18 cans of beer?

Pretty sure the cow drank them.

The State Government of Victoria's Agriculture site says that feral pigs have large tusks and "need to drink daily in hot weather." Apparently it was time for this one to pork-belly up to the bar and stab open a few cold ones.

I like the ambiguity of the camper-pig-cow-altercation sentence.

I once caught a wallaby drinking beer. Some backpackers in the tent next to me had ignored the instructions posted a gazillion times around the campground and left all their rubbish outside. I woke up at 1am to a sound of a small child crashing about a liquor store. I got the torch, shone it to where the noise was and caught a wallaby standing there with a beer can in its hand, looking guilty.

A drunk pig appeared in one of the first Oscar-winning films ever.

The pig may have been drunk, but I'm sure that cow had it coming.

Cows... always standing around, staring you down with those gentle brown eyes, like they couldn't harm a fly.

When my mother was growing up in Wisconsin, a local girl was killed by a cow. Maybe the pig was defending the helpless, sleeping campers from death by bovine.

Needless to say, my next band will be called Cow Altercation.

Isn't a cow altercation where you both make moo-t points?

That all rather depends, Professor, on what one considers to be a pig.

This is a very inventive way to convince dad you didn't drink all his beer.

The fact that it was probably Swan Draught is even more of a reason to convince people you didn't drink it.

Eh, Swan is better than VB and on par with Carlton Draught in my opinion.

So yes, it's piss.

Oh, elizardbits, let me share with you the delights of the NT News!
It is usually a hotbed of bikini girls and crocs,' but there is also
Nuttiest idea to wean us off meat: the Territory's fattest town needs to get the pork off its fork and go vegan!

Croc love bite tips next PM!: Big Wendell the psychic croc, while certainly taking a while to choose, favoured Tony Abbott to take out the election on Saturday. AND HE WAS RIGHT!

Gen Y sisters doing it for themselves- Frails can do sums!

And, my favourite: Only In The Territory - If it involves Crocs or nekkid chicks, or stupidity, boy, is it here? YES.

I am sure drunk pig is somewhere there, but trounced by some other drunk creature.

I must also add that Doris the Drunk Pig was a featured character on A Country Practice before Molly died.

I met one of the senior journos from the NT News once.
He was straight from Fleet Street and within 10 minutes of his company I knew exactly the find of person who writes up the profiles of Page 3 Girls, and types "PWHOOOOOOR" in all caps unironically.
