A fine Sunday (6th December) afternoon at the Alamanda Shopping Complex turned sour after a wild boar was seen straying inside the mall.
The boar managed to induce a small chaos amongst mall-goers when they saw the stray animal roaming inside the Al Ikhsan sports shop.
A few passersby managed to capture the incident on video and uploaded it on their own social media. The video was then shared by Info Roadblock JPJ/POLIS Facebook page in a post which has garnered over 60,000 views at the time of writing.
It is reported that a call to Putrajaya Fire and Rescue Station was made at around 12:40pm. Putrajaya Fire and Rescue Station chief Shaari Abdullah said that two fire engines carrying eight personnel responded to the call and successfully shooed the animal away.
The chief said, “The animal then headed towards the ‘Presint 16’ rugby field and the case was handed over to the Putrajaya Corporation (PPj) Wildlife Division for further action.” The incident didn’t only cause chaos at the shopping complex in Putrajaya, but also on social media with netizens sharing several video clips and photos, which has since gone viral.
