May 22 (UPI) -- A couple taking their 1-year-old son for a walk in Belgium recorded their encounter with an unusually friendly wild boar.

Brice Thumilaire said he and his wife, France, were walking with their 1-year-old son, Emile, in the woods of St. Hubert when they were approached by the boar.

The couple said they initially feared the boar, an animal famed for its aggression, was going to attack, but they were surprised to learn their porcine visitor was merely curious, friendly and apparently hungry.

The video filmed by France shows Brice and Emile interacting with the wild pig.
