Boar breaks into Austrian bank

BRUCK AN DER LEITHA, Austria, July 11 (UPI) -- Workers at an Austrian bank said they checked CCTV tapes after a suspected break-in and discovered the culprit was a wild boar.

Josef Fux, a worker at the Raiffeisen bank in Bruck an der Leitha, said employees arrived for work to find the facility had been broken into and they reviewed security tapes to see a boar shove its way in through a locked door, the Austrian Times reported Wednesday.

"The wild boar managed to get through a closed door and had a look around the bank looking at all the machines before it left," Fux said. "A cleaner first noticed something was not right when she noticed that there were marks and dirt all over the door and it looked like someone had been in the bank. We then looked at the CCTV and saw the boar in the bank. We couldn't believe our eyes."

Fux said workers are trying to determine how the boar was able to open the locked door.

"Our technicians were puzzled as to how the wild boar got in. But it appears the wild boar had pushed the door so hard until it opened even though it was locked. The door was not damaged however. It is a complete mystery how the boar managed it," he said.
