A herd of cows in Lower Saxony recently gained a member: a newborn wild boar has joined the animals.

About three weeks ago he discovered the little animal while feeding in the morning, said farmer Friedrich Stapel.

“All of a sudden I saw: Something small is running behind it.” The young animal is now an attraction in the municipality of Brevörde in the Holzminden district.

Local children have christened the pig Frida.

Frida is already properly integrated into the herd, said Stapel.

A cow takes particular care of the young animal.

The local hunter has already been instructed not to shoot the animal.

As a farmer, he knows that wild boars can cause a lot of damage, said the 66-year-old.

"But that's a whole different thing - so if you don't give in, it's your own fault."

Frida is currently grazing with the cows in a meadow near a hiking trail on the Weser.

Farmer Stapel suspects that she must have lost touch with her peers when they were crossing the river.

In winter, the wild boar probably comes into the barn with the suckler cows.

Stack: "It would be unfair to leave it alone now."
