Um, so I just found this article where a boar have gotten into a shopping mall http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-32688067


A wild boar escaped the forest to run around a Hong Kong shopping mall, eventually getting trapped inside a children's clothing store.
The female boar strayed from its normal habitat to the Chai Wan mall in the east of Hong Kong, where it stayed for four hours.
Reports said it climbed up a ladder before falling through the shop's roof.
The 25kg (55lb) boar was eventually tranquilised before being taken to an animal rehabilitation centre.
News reports in Hong Kong said the boar fell through the roof on to the top of display case.
It then jumped to the floor and ran around the shop, knocking over mannequins and signs.


So what do you think about this?


I personally think it's pretty awesome, but what I'd like to know is how... HOW it got there whitout anyone noticing it, did someone put it there for some reason...?

That isn't awesome. That's terrifying for all those innocent shoppers. Hope it never happens here.

There's a bit more about it in this write up:

- Wild boar falls through ceiling, goes completely bonkers inside Chinese shop
- http://ftw.usatoday.com/2015/05/wild-boar-falls-through-ceiling-goes-completely-bonkers-inside-chinese-shop

This glorious creature had the insatiable curiosity and presence of mind to climb a ladder onto the roof of Chai Wan mall. But as all great fables go, proved too curious for her own good and fell through the ceiling into one of the stores.

Eventually she was tranquilized and taken to an animal shelter, where I hope that she’s been well taken care of.

There's a video and Vine (https://vine.co/v/eKbhTBVxWVe) of the boar running about.



/Edit: Ah, my story is the same as OPs. My mistake. Nothing new in my post... move along people...

I personally feel more for the boar. It must be confused and scared witless. I mean, boars are tough creatures. But falling through the roof like you're some overweight Santa can't be fun for anyone.

I'm sure it followed the teachings of the laddergoat.

Hmm... well, here is the Google Maps shot of the Hing Wah Plaza (where the mall is):

- https://goo.gl/maps/s4dPm

If you pull out a bit, you can see the place is "somewhat" surrounded by trees, mountains, etc. So..

Theory #1

Boar is in the wild, but on the edge of human civilization. Has been here before (to eat out of garbage cans), but gets lost. Climbs ladder thinking it's something else. Gets even more lost. Fall through ceiling. Bam! Boar in mall.

Theory #2

The boar was put up on the roof to act as a diversion for another crime being committed further in the mall. Capture boar. Release boar on roof. Boar falls through. Everyone looks at boar. Rob another store. Boar takes one for the team.

Theory #3

Spider Pig
