There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

When it comes to finding food, the animal kingdom can be a ruthless place where crabs feed on birdsgators feed on gators, and raccoons gorge on so much bread that they get stuck in sewers. But no gruesome cannibalistic scene or carbo-loaded feast compares to the sight of this freakishly sized boar rummaging through the trash in Hong Kong. Behold, the very hungry, very large Boar King:

Facebook user Tu Dong uploaded footage of the gargantuan beast last week, and the thing puts even that Planet Earth lizard-snake scene to shame. As you can see, it is large enough to prop its front two legs up on a dumpster and root through the trash inside, pulling this way and that on a particularly enticing bag with its massive maw. Meanwhile, its mini (or regular-size?) pig friends mill about on the sidewalk, waiting for their share of the feast. Somehow, the beast's tiny legs manage to support all that weight.

According to the Daily Mail, the Mack truck of a porker happened to be gorging on trash a few blocks away from an elementary school, which caused some concern among the folks who saw the video on Facebook. Mostly, though, people were just in awe of the giant beast, saying something to the effect of—if Google translate can be trusted—"just let the damn thing eat."
"It's so hungry," one commenter wrote. "Wild boar has the right to live and freedom. He is only hungry for food."

"Pityful," another chimed in. "They are hungry, my goodness."

As a matter of fact, Hong Kong has over 100 wild boars, in fact, Hong Kong is a high greening city, so that 's why there are so many wildlife living in HongKong

Wild boars are getting kicked out of deserted Japanese towns

Japanese towns deserted after the Fukushima nuclear crisis have had new tenants: wild boars. After six years of roaming empty streets, the animals are being evicted by boar hunters to prepare for human return. Now that radiation levels have dropped, four towns are partially cleared for residents at the end...

A Bear of a Boar

THE FIRST TIME I saw a wild boar in Russia, I thought it was a bear: an arched back of matted fur pushing through the tall grasses of a meadow, then stepping into the clear understory of open oak and birch forest. I was relieved it wasn’t a bear. It was a large male boar—the kind of animal unafraid of anything—and if it noticed me, it made no visible sign that it had. The wild boar of the Russian Far East are absolutely huge—the largest of any boar subspecies—with records up to 700 pounds. That is, actually, as big as a bear.


Wild boar are the favored prey of Amur tigers, and are targets of human hunters eager to put food on their tables. But these are not beasts to be underestimated: if not killed immediately on a hunt, they often turn on their attacker rather than flee; a charging, waist-high mass swinging curved blades in the form of tusks. Hunters are occasionally slain by boar they could not kill first. A skilled hunter once told me he spied a large male boar, but did not see a suitable tree to climb if his aim was off and the boar charged, so he let the animal pass. Better to go home empty-handed than not at all.

It’s not just humans who can face the ire of a threatened wild boar: even experienced, adult tigers have been mortally injured by wild boar in miscalculated attacks.

So, next time I see something big and dark coming at me through the understory, perhaps I’ll want to hope it’s a bear after all.

Predation on Ungulates
Predation on the ungulates is a trait of ecology of brown bears typical for different areas of the species range (Bromlei, 1965, Semyonov-Tyan-Shansky, 1979, Zavatsky, 1979, Lavov, 1987, Pazhetnov, 1990 and Bobyr, 1991). The extent and nature of predation vary with the seasons. In most cases, this method of feeding behavior is of the greatest importance for bears in the spring (Pazhetnov, 1990). This statement is typical for brown bears in Sikhote-Alin (Bromlei, 1965, Yudakov and Nikolaev, 1987, Yudin, 1993 and Kostoglod, 2006). In summer there is a decline of predation related to the abundance of feed (Bromlei, 1965). In autumn with the abundance of fattening feed of vegetable origin predation is not expressed, but during hungry years it is on the contrary typically occurring among bears (Bromlei, 1965, Rakov, 1966 and Abramov, 1972). Wild boar and red deer (Cervus elaphus) are the most common ungulate prey of brown bears in Sikhote-Alin.

Here one video about bear and boar. Quite small bear in this, but just one example, that when bear needs meat and no carcass available, then bear hunts and kills something to eat. Boar is as good prey as something else if bear just can outrun it to be able to catch it. Bear starts to eat boar alive here, just telling if someone doesn´t want to see it happening.

This is the second video I have seen of an Amur brown bear and wild boar. In both videos a young bear and in both very impatient people in their trucks. But a good find.

It is always good luck to be there, when something like this happens. So obviously not too much footage like this available. Damn that these people were stupid to disturb that bear.

Lol Crying budy, that's the same video  Lol Crying Lol when I posted it a year ago was surprised that somebody had posted it before me, so this glorious video is circulating in the forum already many years, but its really unique.
And the reason these Russian guys are so impatient is that probably the beasts blocked their way to the local pub or liquor store...
