Giant boar dubbed ‘Pigzilla’ caught on video

The giant boar pigzilla animal was filmed standing on its hind legs to grab food scraps out of a dumpster in Hong Kong.

Feral pigs have long proven a nuisance in the region and this one has been a cause for particular concern among parents due to its proximity to a nearby elementary school.

The video, which was recorded by Facebook user Tu Dong, shows the huge animal reaching in to a dumpster while several smaller pigs can be seen wandering around nearby. More than 2500 social media users also commented on the video, many of which expressed concern about how close the wild pigs were to the school.

Misaki Ceci wrote: “The wild pig is in front of the left school. I’m careful with Hyung-Hyung’s primary school, and I’ve got a wild boar.”

The footage shows the boar trying to pull a black garbage bag out of the skip bin while his piglets stand guard. The footage has been viewed more than 300,000 times since being uploaded online.
