« Some time ago, i spent an evening in my parents’ pig farm. Suddenly someone broke in my home. Very few clues to examine : prints, some acorns and leaves. Il y a quelques jours, alors que je passais la soirée dans la porcherie de mes parents, un individu m’a joué un tour de cochon et s’est introduit dans ma maison. Sur place, très peu d’indices : une trace de patte, quelques glands et des feuillages. According to the experts, the suspect could be one of my family (the Suidae).
