Fitness model Michelle Lewin had a very scary moment recently, as she was in the middle of a bikini photo shoot and was attacked by wild pigs.

According to People, Michelle Lewin was on the beach in the Bahamas shooting some photos in front of a gorgeous ocean scene when a strange incident occurred. The Venezuelan model was set upon by a group of wild pigs, one of which bit her on her backside, leaving a mark.

Lewin even posted a video of the attack, one which shows a group of at least four pigs running up to the model on the beach — one of the largest racing towards her and biting down on her posterior as she screamed out and tried to run away.

Later in the video, Michelle reveals a red mark on her cheek from the pig attack.

Lewin is seen sporting a light blue bikini with lace detail. The classic triangle top showed off the model’s ample cleavage while the tiny thong bikini bottoms flaunted the model’s famous curves.

Meanwhile, the outlet reports that tourists who visit the area often swim with the pigs, and the Bahamas tourism board encourages interaction with the animals. However, some website about the area warns that no animals that visitors will encounter during their trip are trained or domesticated at all, leaving them subject to attacks like the one on Lewin.
