A MAN from Gemas, Negri Sembilan, has adopted a wild boar piglet as a pet after it kept chasing him while he was riding his motorcycle, China Press reported.
Video footage of the incident showed a piglet running after him for nearly 200m, perhaps attracted to the sound of his motorcycle.
When he stopped, the piglet was seen snuggling up to his machine.
Touched by the animal’s gesture, the man decided to take the piglet in as a pet.
Later, he posted photos of the piglet being taken on a walk while on a leash.
Netizens praised him for his kindness to animals.
Sin Chew Daily reported.
Coffee shop owner Yuan Qiao Ping said she had started a food bank with a cousin.
They sought out local businesses to sponsor food such as rice, noodles, canned food and biscuits.
However, Yuan was surprised when a mamak stall owner informed her that someone had tried selling them some of the foodstuff obtained from her food bank.
She said some of those who had gone to the food bank had told her that “someone told me there was free stuff here”.
“I had to correct them by saying that these items are for the needy,” said a frustrated Yuan.
To avoid depriving those truly in need of food, Yuan said her food bank would no longer accept walk-ins.
Instead, she will be delivering the items to the needy.
Beginning July 6, those in need of food will have to first register themselves for the aid.
Yuan and her relatives would then visit their houses to assess their situation before sending the food.
