June 21 (UPI) -- A wild boar caused a stir on the Hong Kong subway when it took a ride on a train -- and switched trains at a station to evade its pursuers before being captured.

Witnesses said the boar boarded the train at the Quarry Bay station and transit employees chased after the wild pig, but it darted off the train a few stations away and boarded a second train.


A video of the chase was posted to Facebook by the Hong Kong Wild Boar Concern Group, a nonprofit dedicated to preserving the animals.

The second train was diverted to a depot where Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department officers were able to safely capture the boar and return it to the wild.
