After it emerged online, some commenters speculated that the raccoon was hopping on the back to reach the feeder - so both animals could feast.
One said: "The animals go to eat the corn that is dropped from the feeder twice a day, and the camera snaps a picture. Probably, the boar and the raccoon found themselves at the feeder every day waiting for the corn to come out. One day the raccoon tried to get at the feeder by climbing on the nearest thing - the boar. Maybe the raccoon was able to shake the feeder and get some more corn to come out. If it worked, then they would keep doing it. Boars are dumb. It is probably too busy eating corn to worry about the raccoon on its back. If it meant getting more food, it would tolerate just about anything."
Another added: "We need more cameras in the woods. Who knows how much animal comedy is being wasted on animals?"
