WATCH: Wild boar drops in for some shopping in Hong Kong mall

(CBS) – A Hong Kong shopping mall received an unusual visit on Sunday, when a wild boar wandered inside and got trapped inside a children’s clothing store.

TV news footage showed the boar making a hole in the showroom’s false ceiling before dropping down a short distance to stand on top of display cases.

Local news reports said the animal was a 55 pounds , three-foot-long juvenile female. While juvenile females in shopping malls are not uncommon, this girl drew a lot of attention.

A crowd of shoppers, watching from behind a line of police, squealed with amazement as the boar jumped to the floor and skittered around the shop, knocking over mannequins and signs.

The boar was eventually tranquilized by a vet and taken to an animal rehab center, the South China Morning Post reported.

Wild boars are common in Hong Kong’s rural, forested areas.
