A wild boar fell through the ceiling of a children's clothing store in Hong Kong on Sunday -- and the video has the Internet squealing.

According to the South China Morning Post, the incident resulted in a four-hour standoff with police after employees at the Chai Wan shopping mall in Hong Kong first spotted the animal, then fled the children's boutique, leaving the boar trapped inside.

It's not clear exactly how the boar got into the mall in the first place, although the Associated Press notes that the animals are common in Hong Kong and can often be seen wandering around in the hills.

The boar apparently made it into the ceiling by climbing up a ladder in the back room of the shop, reports the Associated Press. It punched through a corner of the false ceiling onto an elevated display case, then proceeded to ham it up in the store, knocking over a few mannequins in the process, according to the BBC.

The incident came to a close after a vet tranquilized the animal and took it to a wildlife center for observation, reports the South China Morning Post.
