Since wild boars can be aggressive when approached, the Swedish skaters found an innovative, safer way to remove the wild boars.

Taking the curling approach, the skaters used push brooms to gently nudge the boars off the lake and onto land.

The boars made it on land without incident. The Swedish nature site Natursidan reported that the boars ran out of food on the small island in the lake and ventured out.

Video of the rescue can be seen below.
