For some, this is likely to be the stuff of nightmares.
A giant boar has been filmed standing on its hind quarters rummaging through a bin.
The brazen boar even has the gumption to rip open a black bag as he hunts for dinner among the rubbish of his human neighbours while his three piglets stand guard.
The video, which was filmed by parent Tu Dong on the way to school, has gone viral across Hong Kong and China after a spate of wild boar attacks has struck fear into people.
More than 300,000 people have watched time since it was uploaded by Tu Dong with parents commenting their concern about the big boar’s proximity to a school.
Misaki Ceci commented: ‘The wild pig is in front of the school. I’m careful with Hyung-Hyung’s primary school.’
However, animal lovers were worried about the boar’s family’s welfare, one said: ‘It’s so hungry, and the wild boar has the right to live and freedom. He is only hungry.’
Due to deforestation and development on their natural habitat more boars have been forced to forage for food in Hong Kong’s suburbs.
Police were forced to use riot shields and nets last June when another giant boar went on the rampage last year and in 2016, a female boar weighing 50kg wandered into Hong Kong International Airport causing panic.
