A man in his forties was taken to hospital after he was attacked by a wild boar at Hillview Road. Photos of the incident posted online show a wild boar lying on the pavement near a bus stop.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said they received a call for assistance at 8.43am and dispatched an ambulance to 25 Hillview Avenue. A Chinese man suffered “cuts on both legs” and was conveyed conscious to Ng Teng Fong hospital, said SCDF.

There has been a series of incidents involving wild boars this year. In July, a woman needed 60 stitches for a leg wound after being attacked by a wild boar in the Upper Thomson area.

In September, three people were sent to hospital after an accident involving three vehicles and a wild boar at Lentor Avenue on 29 September. In a separate accident on 28 September, a wild boar on the Ayer Rajah Expressway caused an accident that sent two people to hospital.
