Herd the news? Wild boar piglet adopted by cows

你「豬」道嗎?小野豬被牛群收養

 

【摘要2023-02-23.自由】孫宇青

A cow herd in the central German community of Brevoerde has adopted a lone wild boar piglet.

德國中部布雷弗爾德村的一個牛群,收養了一隻落單的野豬幼崽。

Farmer Friedrich Stapel told the dpa news agency that it had likely lost its group when they crossed a nearby river.

農夫弗里德里希斯塔佩爾向「德新社」表示,這隻小野豬可能是在橫渡附近一條溪流時,和其他野豬失散。

Stapel said while he knows what extensive damage wild boars can cause, he can’t bring himself to chase the animal away.

斯塔佩爾說,雖然他知道野豬可能帶來的巨大損害,但他不忍心把牠趕走。

The local hunter has been told not to shoot the piglet — nicknamed Frieda — and in winter Stapel plans to put it in the shed with the mother cows.

當地獵人已被告知不要射殺這隻暱稱弗里達的小豬,斯塔佩爾還準備在冬天來的時候,讓小豬和牛媽媽們一起待在牛棚。

新聞辭典

herd:動詞或名詞,放牧、牧群。本文標題「Herd the news?」的「Herd」與「Heard」(聽聞)有諧音之趣,意指「有沒有聽過?」,故譯者以中文諧音翻譯,保留趣味性。

not bring oneself to do something:慣用片語,無法強迫自己做(不願做的事)。例句:She could not bring herself to tell him the truth.(她不忍心告訴他真相。)

 

Poison in the Flowerbeds

世界上最毒的花園

【摘要2023-02-23.壹蘋】

One of the unique features of Alnwick Garden is an entire area set aside for poisonous plants. Inside the Poison Garden, there are more than 100 toxic species, with plenty of information about their special properties. Although some of these plants are deadly, and there have been cases of visitors fainting from smelling some of the plants’ toxic gases, the Poison Garden is now one of the main reasons people visit. The garden has even earned the title as the most dangerous garden in the world.

阿尼克花園的其中一個獨特之處是為有毒植物預留的一整片區域。毒花園內有一百多個有毒物種,以及大量關於它們特性的資訊。雖然其中一些植物是致命的,並且有遊客因聞到植物的有毒氣體而暈倒的案例,但毒花園是人們現在參觀的主要原因之一。該花園甚至贏得了世界上最危險花園的稱號。
