Stomper Liew has seen the same wild boar at Sungei Kadut Drive several times in the past two months.

He shared photos and a video he took of the wild boar with Stomp.

Liew wrote, "(The wild boar) is out to look for food. Shaking its tail and looks quite friendly."

According to the Stomper, it can be seen wandering along the road side for food at Sungei Kadut Drive near Sungei Kadut Street 5. It usually appears in the morning at 7.45am-8.15am or in the evening between 6pm to 6.30pm.

While Liew said that the wild boar does not come out everyday, he has seen the same wild boar at least two times per week.

According to NParks, this is what you should do when you encounter wild boars:

Be calm and move slowly away from the animal. Do not approach or attempt to feed the animal.

Keep a safe distance and do not corner or provoke the animal i.e. by using a flash while taking pictures of it.

If you see adults with young piglets, leave them alone. These are potentially more dangerous because they may attempt to defend their young.

Liew also told Stomp that he had spotted a different group of wild boars at the bushes outside Kranji Camp 3 along Chua Chu Kang Way.
