The massive animal was filmed standing on its hind legs to grab food scraps out of a dumpster in Hong Kong.
Feral pigs have long proven a nuisance in the region and this one has been a cause for particular concern among parents due to its proximity to a nearby elementary school.

The video, which was recorded by Facebook user Tu Dong, shows the huge animal reaching in to a dumpster while several smaller pigs can be seen wandering around nearby.

The footage has been viewed more than 300,000 times since being uploaded online.

Are those piglets or just average size boars in comparison?

The State of Mississippi has declared them to be "varmits", meaning there is no need for a license, a season or even a time of day or night that they are restricted from being killed.  They destroy crops, push out some indigenous species and are a danger to people in the vicinity.  They breed like rats.  They're a very destructive species and one THAT size could easily kill a man, let alone a child that got in its way.

I forwarded this article to our manufacturing plant.  We have 4600 acres and have all sorts of wild game.  We allow hunting during each season. One of the wild game is boar.  Here's a response from one of the employees; Subject: Re: Do yours get that big at the plant?   That’s a piglet back there where I hunt.  Thanks Chuck

Another comment from a co-worker.  I know the story of the boars at Martin SC. There was a disgruntled hog farmer the was going to lose his land to the Savannah River Site (US Nuclear R&D). Somehow he and te US Government rep had a huge argument so the farmer left his pigs out to run wild and mate with the wide boars that were in the area.  One thing led to another.  Here's the comment   One that size rolls my trash can back from the edge of the road to the yard!!

That is a big one, but it seems to me I've seen pics of wild hogs almost 50% taller.
