When boars fly

Boar falls through ceiling of Hong Kong children's clothing store
United Press International (article excerpt) - May 11, 2015

A wild boar fell through the ceiling of a children's clothing store in Hong Kong, leading to a four-hour standoff with police.

The female boar, which authorities said was likely a resident of nearby woods, apparently climbed a ladder at a mall in the Chai Wan neighborhood Sunday before falling through the ceiling of a children's clothing store and landing on the top of a display case.

The boar eventually jumped to the ground and ran around the store.

"It just came in out of nowhere, and turned around at the window," the store's manager told the South China Morning Post. "It also pushed open the fitting room door and got in."

Officials said the animal will be returned to the wild.
