Stunned Shoppers Watch as Wild Hog Crashes Through Ceiling of Children’s Clothing Store in Hong Kong

This is the dramatic moment a wild boar crashed through the ceiling of a children’s clothes shop.

The incredible footage was captured at a shopping centre in Hong Kong and shows the 55lb animal emerging legs first from the showroom’s false ceiling.

Amazed shoppers looked on as first one, then two legs emerged through the ceiling, before the boar, which had apparently climbed up a ladder in the shop's back room, crashed through completely.

After landing on top of a display case, the wild hog looks down at the crowd of excited onlookers and sets about making an escape.

It walks from left to right before deciding to jump to the ground and make a run for it.
A line of police stand by the door as the frightened animal begins parading the shop frantically looking for an exit.

In its haste it knocks a number of children’s mannequins to the ground as well as an advertising sign as the police close in on it.

The boar even manages to show off its incredible athleticism and effortlessly jumps over a large display fence before it is cornered.

According to the South China Morning Post the boar was eventually tranquilized by a vet and taken to an animal rehab centre.

Local news reports said the animal was a three-foot-long juvenile female.
Wild boars are common in Hong Kong's rural, forested areas.
