Stomper Evan came across a herd of wild boars at Pasir Ris Farmway on July 21.

He told Stomp that the boars were eating food left for them by people.

"We have too many 'kind' people feeding them making the place full of trash and pests," he said.

He added that he sees the wild boars every day.


"They are fed bags of food, some in plastics containers," Evan said.

Evan shared his experience with Stomp after reading a previous Stomp article on a wild boar that has been regularly sighted in Yew Tee estate over the past few weeks.

Deputy Chief Executive of Animal Concerns Research and Education Society (Acres) Mr Kalai Vanan Balakrishnan told Stomp that the boar was observed to be very comfortable being near humans which might indicate that it is being fed by people causing it to not be shy.

The AVA issued the following public advisory:

  • AVA advises the public not to approach, disturb, feed or try to catch any wildlife. We urge the public to keep a safe distance from all wild boars and avoid confronting or cornering the animals. Do not interact with the animal, and ensure that young children and pets are kept away as they may be curious and approach it.
  • The public can refer to the advisory on wild boars on AVA’s website and contact us at 1800 476 1600 to provide feedback or request for assistance.
