A three-and-a-half foot long wild boar was spotted swimming in the waters near Tong Yin street in Tseung Kwan O yesterday morning. Ming Pao reports that a dragonboat crew was getting onto their boat when they saw a windsurfer waving to them from the water. He had seen the boar swimming and feared that it would drown, or injure passersby if it made it back to shore.

 

The dragonboat team worked together to bring the boar back to land and restrained it until the SPCA and Agricultural, Fisheries and Conservation Department arrived. Wild boars are not protected under Hong Kong law, and are usually found in rural areas in Sai Kung, Tai Lam Chung and Sha Tau Kok rather than splashing about in the open ocean.

That is so sweet! It is nice to know that some people do care. Many thanks to the windsurfer who spotted it and the crew who saved it.

Kinda cool what the dragon boat team did. Despite knowing the boar could injure passer bys. It was handle meticulously.

That is rather unusual, what could have made the boar decide to swim out. As far as outcomes, this is better than the boar causing a ruckus in the store story from a few months back.
