A video posted to Twitter by Felix Hackenbruch shows the pack of pigs, including several young hogs, running across a busy road in the Zehlendorf district of Berlin while police blocked traffic.

The video was shared by Berlin Police, who provided a second clip showing police monitoring the boar herd before their successful road crossing.

"Sometimes the wilderness is right on our doorstep," police tweeted.
