The pig eventually gave up to the tent

The campers scream as the boar sprints away, dragging the tent along the sand before it dropping it. 

As onlookers approach, the boar then grabs the groundsheet and begins running away before dropping the plastic too and fleeing.

Local media report the Hong Kong authorities received 929 complaints or reports of wild boar sightings in 2018, 26 percent more than in 2017.

Seven people were reportedly injured in 2018 in incidents with wild boars.

The authorities are trying to contain the wild boar population by capturing the animals and sterilising them before releasing them into the wild.
