Boar caught in shopping centre

A Hong KonG shopping mall received an unexpected visit when a wild boar got trapped inside a children's clothing store.

Video showed the boar, which had apparently climbed up a ladder in the shop's back room, punching a hole through the false ceiling with a hoof.

Reports said the animal was a 25-kilo, metre-long juvenile female which clambered down on to the display case and jumped to the floor.

The boar was tranquilised and taken to an animal rehab centre.
