Feb. 12 (UPI) — A video spreading rapidly across social media in Hong Kong shows a monster-size wild boar standing on its hind legs to raid a dumpster.
The video, posted to Facebook by Tu Dong, shows the gargantuan pig picking through a dumpster while two piglets stand by in wait for their share of the feast.
Commenters expressed concern for the safety of children at a nearby elementary school with the “boar king” running loose.
Wild boar are common in Hong Kong, but generally steer clear of urban areas. Police said a suspected hit-and-run driver killed five young wild pigs late last month on a road inside Tai Mo Shan Country Park.
