The incident was featured on state broadcaster CCTV today after it recently took place at the bubble tea store, a popular tea-based drink, in a shopping centre.

The employee, known by her surname Shi, was working at the shop alone on the afternoon of October 29 when the wild boar suddenly appeared.

‘I saw a black shadow,’ Ms Shi told reporters. ‘I thought it was a Husky and it just broke through the door.’

Security camera captures the moment the animal charging across the store before running towards the horrified worker who was standing behind the counter.

As Ms Shi scurried for cover, the beast jumped across the table and rushed out of the shop.

‘I didn’t expect it to be a boar,’ the employee said. ‘It also had sharp teeth and seemed frightened.

‘Who would have thought that you would see a wild boar while having a cup of bubble tea in the afternoon?’

CCTV featured the incident in a Monday report to warn the public about encountering wild animals in public after several similar incidents had recently occurred in Nanjing.

‘We have received three wild boars since autumn and they are all males,’ said Chen Yuelong, a worker from Nanjing Wildlife Rescue Centre.

‘It’s likely because they are expanding their area of activity to look for more breeding opportunities during the mating season,’ Mr Chen added.

‘The ones we found in Nanjing got lost after running into the city. They were not looking for food.’

The animal rescuer urged the residents to remain calm when encountering a wild boar and contact the authorities immediately.
