A wild boar was spotted in the Bukit Panjang’s Zhenghua Nature Park area. It appeared to be afraid to be out in the open with humans and tried to find an escape route back to the nature park.

Some other pictures which have emerged online showed the wild boar cowering and trying to hide from prying human eyes.
This is not the first time wild boars have been spotted in that area. Some time last year, a piglet was spotted in Jelapang Road.
Zhenghua Nature Park is located in Bukit Panjang. Skirting the Central Catchment Nature Reserve, the nature park serves as a green buffer for the reserve.
The 13.5 hectare linear Zhenghua Nature Park was completed in 2002 and stretches for about 2.5 km along the BKE, linking the Bukit Panjang Park Connector to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. A 3.8 hectare extension was opened in November 2015, bringing the total area of Zhenghua Nature Park to 17.3 hectares.
