Wild boar shot by Police after endangering public safety!


On 21 Nov 2017 at 7.08pm, the Police were alerted to an accident involving a wild boar and a car on Punggol West Flyover. The injured wild boar was lying on the road when Police officers and ACRES personnel arrived at the location. The wild boar got up and charged towards the officers and members of the public within the vicinity. The officers fired their Tasers at the boar, but it continued to charge towards them and the public.

As the wild boar was rampaging and was a danger to the people within the vicinity, an officer had to draw his revolver to fire a shot at it, to stop it from injuring anyone. The wild boar was shot at the neck. The tusked wild boar measured 1.5m from head to tail. The injured wild boar was handed over to the ACRES personnel and subsequently euthanised. No one was injured in the incident.
