This is the moment a wild boar weighing over 270 lbs walks into a bar and terrifies customers and staff who are seen running for their lives.

The animal also known as a Eurasian wild pig (Sus scrofa) caused chaos in the establishment called Amani KTV at just before midnight on 23rd September.

CCTV images show the giant hog appearing to be searching for food when it turns up at the business’s entrance in the county of Jixian, which is in north-eastern China’s Heilongjiang Province.

The fully grown pig with giant tusks is seen charging down the corridor and slamming head first in a sofa, both injuring and further angering itself.

The animal slips and slides on the tile floor before it barges its way into a karaoke booth, sending a frightened couple fleeing out the door as they were reportedly cut off mid-song.

Staff members who later inspect the private booth also run for their lives, the footage shows.

They said they had tried to contain the animal in one of the rooms, but the boar was too strong for them to hold back.

Amani KTV employee Yang Baining recalled: “The first thing it did was smash the counter in our lobby.

“It then ran down the corridor into the customers’ booth. They all ran out screaming.

“The staff members evacuated the customers and called the police.”

By the time the officers arrived, staff members had successfully trapped the boar in another karaoke booth with a door which only opens inwards.

Unable to pull open the door, the 270-pound pig was unable to escape.

County police said they called forestry officials for consultation, asking what they should do with the animal which belongs to a state-protected species in mainland China.

As the officers were not equipped with tranquillisers, the Jixi Forestry Bureau gave orders to shoot the hog dead.

The police, who fired three shots, later dragged the boar’s carcass out of the karaoke and handed it over to forestry authorities for examination.

No one was injured during the incident, but it is unclear whether the business was insured for such cases.
