Stomper Christine saw a wild boar near Punggol Waterway Park on Thursday (Feb 21), at around 10am.

She contributed two photos of the lone animal and described it as "huge".

Christine said: "It came out of the park, went to the open field near Block 300+ and ran around."

Here's what you should do when you encounter a wild boar:

  • 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.
