The boar was attempting to escape from a small island in the middle of the lake, where he was likely running out of food. Unable to swim across, he tried to walk but kept slipping, and ended up entirely stuck.

Luckily, a group of skaters who were out curling spotted the little guy and knew they needed to help.

And so, instead of curling stones, they curled boar.
