Wild (office) life

 (Click to view larger version...)

The "Picture of the Week" in Newsline #132 featured a sign posted on the entrance door of one of the 525 buildings that recommended closing the doors in the evening to prevent wild boars from entering the premises.

As this picture illustrates, there was good reason. Bruno Couturier from Agence Iter France snapped this shot in July 2007. The young boar entering his office in building 521 was visibly undeterred by human presence.

That's what happens when men and beasts share the same enclosed territory for 50 years!
