Stomper Shivanesh was walking along the Jurong Park Connector in Jurong West on Tuesday morning (Sep 3) when he came across an unusual find.

He found a skull lying on a grass patch next to some string.

The skull had no remnants of flesh or sinew on it.

The Stomper asked: "Is it an animal skull?"

"If yes, how could anyone do such a thing, it's so hurtful to see this."

In response to a Stomp query, Mr Kalai Vanan, deputy chief executive of Animal Concerns Research and Education Society (Acres) shared with Stomp that the remains look like a skull of a wild boar.

A Google search by Stomp of wild boar skulls showed similar skulls to the one Shivanesh had found.

The circumstances of the animal's death are unclear.

Wild boars are not an uncommon sight in Singapore.

The omnivorous mammals usually live in the fringe of forests and will sometimes venture into urban neighbourhoods in search of food.
