Dec. 5 (UPI) -- A pair of wild boars caused chaos at a school in Japan when they ran amok through the facility and charged at students and teachers.

Video filmed by witnesses Monday at Higashiyama Middle School and High School in Kyoto shows a boar repeatedly ramming a glass door in apparent attempt to get inside.

The footage shows a boar running up some stairs inside the school a short time later as the filmer flees.

The animals were eventually shot with tranquilizers and captured.

Kyoto residents have reported numerous boar encounters in recent weeks, including an incident in May involving a boar that smashed its way into a hotel.
