Wild boars disrupt Hong Kong after sightings increase in urban city

Wild boars are disrupting Hong Kong after sightings increased in urban city.

The video, filmed in Kowloon on September 24, shows a couple of wild boards hunting for food in a bush near residential buildings.

According to the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD), the number of boar sightings and nuisance reports has more than doubled in the past five years.

Local people feeding the pigs is one of the reasons behind the increasing number as well as encouraging them to come into contact with humans.

The problem has been brought to the attention of Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor.
