Shakira said a pair of wild boars attacked her and snatched her purse as she was walking through a park in Spain with her son.
The Grammy-winning singer recounted the ordeal on Wednesday in a series of videos posted to her Instagram story.
“Watch how two wild boars that attacked me in the park left my bag,” Shakira told her 70 followers in one of the videos as she held her torn bag.
Images and videos shared on Instagram stories disappear after 24 hours, but the BBC reported that she was in a park in Barcelona at the time of the incident.
“They were taking my bag into the woods with my cell phone in it,” Shakira said. “They destroyed everything.
She then pushed Milan, her 8-year-old son, to vote on the attack.
“Milan tell the truth,” she told him. “Tell how your mom resisted the boar.”
The BBC reported that Barcelona have seen an influx of wild boars in recent years. Animals are drawn to cities, where they live on leftover food.
