Acres recently posted a video on Facebook of a wild board digging through and biting open trash bags to find food.
Acres urge residents to properly dispose of their garbage as it will attract wild boars.
Here is what ACRES said:
MANAGING FOOD WASTE IS THE FIRST STEP TO COEXISTENCEWe have been alerted to sightings of a wild pig at Petir Road (Bukit Panjang area) who is growing accustomed to the food waste from bins that are not wildlife proof.Sadly, there have been two similar cases in Choa Chu Kang area due to overflowing food waste and people feeding him/her. Both were eventually captured by the authorities (and euthanised) due to complaints from residents/town council on safety concerns.Interactions with a conditioned wild pig by the unaware public can result in potential conflict situations.Can we prevent this from happening at Bukit Panjang too? Can you please share with your friends who live in this area to follow Wildlife Etiquette?
