The coronavirus epidemic has closed people up in their homes, but as for Haifa's wild boars – life continues as usual.

Though the restaurant dumpsters they usually feast on have dried up, the boars are still finding plenty of meals in the neighborhood trash cans.

The Haifa municipality held a Zoom meeting on the matter on Sunday. There are still groups who feed the pigs, despite multiple attempts by the municipality to get them to stop.

In the meantime, while the residents of Haifa are stuck in doors, the pigs roam free. And they're happy as could be.
