A Hong Kong man was bitten by a wild boar on Monday after he threw a stone at a group of them in Aberdeen. The 70-year-old man came across several of the animals near a bus terminus at Tung On House, Lei Tung Estate on Ap Lei Chau shortly before 7pm. He reportedly threw a stone at the boars. One of them then bit the man on his right side, near his pelvis, tearing his jeans. A security guard at the nearby public housing estate called for an ambulance. The man was treated at Queen Mary Hospital and was discharged. Police officers later found three boars, each about a metre long, nearby. The animals subsequently disappeared into the adjacent countryside Boars are among the most commonly encountered wild species in the city. In October, three people were sent to hospital after being attacked by a wild boar at Fu Shan Estate in Wong Tai Sin. Two people were injured in September after being attacked by boars near the University of Hong Kong campus in Pok Fu Lam.
