The photo of “Boar King” has not been altered to make him look larger. A Facebook video was uploaded last week by Tu Dong showing this hefty beast checking out the “snacks” in a nearby dumpster.

According to the Daily Mail, who has labeled the animal “Pigzilla”, it was indeed a scary sight since not too far away is an elementary school, but the animal, joined by his smaller pals, just seems to be interested in the garbage. It’s quite amazing how the gargantuan beast can stand on his tiny back legs (as compared to rest of him) and pulls out a bag full of anticipated goodies.

Even though there is some concern with the school’s proximity, most readers who have seen the Facebook video were just in awe of the huge animal and deferred to anyone defending the animal’s right to find food.

“It’s so hungry. Wild boar has the right to live and freedom. He is only hungry for food.”

The video has been shared more than 6,600 times and viewed 530,000 times.  More than 3,000 comments have been lodged – most of them supporting the wild boar’s right to find food.

    Hope they can somehow capture these boar and return them to a safe place where they don’t have to come into contact with humans.
