Shakira said a pair of wild boars attacked her and snatched her purse while she was walking in 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.
"Look at how two wild boar which attacked me in the park have left my bag," Shakira told her more 70 followers in one of the videos as she held up her torn bag.
Images and videos shared to Instagram stories disappear after 24 hours, but the BBC reported she was in a park in Barcelona at the time of the incident.
