Even though the wild boar was keeping to itself and not bothering anyone in the video, the animal reportedly stuck around for 20 minutes and interacted with a taxi driver before disappearing completely. Police officers at the scene were not able to find the animal.
“We felt pretty calm since the boar seemed very calm,” a representative from Winstons Cafe told the publication.
The viral video was taken by a passerby and later sent to the owner of the cafe, Simon, Lim told Coconuts Hong Kong.
Sightings of wild boars in Hong Kong are nothing new. Last year, an injured wild boar wandered into the Kennedy Town MTR station and left a trail of bloody footprints, Coconuts Hong Kong reported.
In 2018, a massive wild boar, called “Pigzilla,” was caught on video going through a dumpster outside of a school in Hong Kong.

I like how nobody is bothered by this. #hongkong.
Is this down the hill from HKU?
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
