When a wild boar falls through your shop’s ceiling, it’s probably a good idea to leave…
Apparently wild swine are becoming an issue in Asia, where this juvenile female was seen running into a Chai Wan shopping mall. It climbed above a children’s clothing store’s false ceiling, only to punch through moments later and eventually fall to the floor.
The pig then proceeded to run amok inside the store, knocking down mannequins, trapping itself in a changing room, and
The South China Morning Post reported the incident resulted in a four-hour stand-off with local police and animal control.
Eventually the hog was tranquilized and brought to an animal management center for observation.
This wasn’t the first feral pig incident that occurred in the area that day, as reports of another hog swimming in a pool at Shing Mun Valley Park circulated earlier in the morning. That hog was also tranquilized and released shortly after.
