A wild boar was found taking a nap in the guest bedroom in a Bavarian family’s house after fleeing from hunters, police said on Monday.

“The sow panicked and was completely disoriented after being chased in the morning by hunters,” a police spokesman said. “It ran into a village and broke through a cellar window into a house. It fell asleep on a bed in the guest room.”

When the 132-pound boar awoke late on Saturday afternoon after sleeping for a few hours, it started panicking again when it could not find its way out of the house. That’s when the family noticed their uninvited visitor.

They called in a neighbor, also a hunter, who shot and killed the animal.
