Today I have the opportunity to personally touched the wild boar not one but maaaaany. Probably there were 100 over wild boar. The place is behind TESCO in Kamunting, Taiping.
I have read about these wild boar in The Star paper some months ago. I was also told by some friends that these wild boar can bring you luck. According to those who have been to this place, many people who have touched these wild boar have strike numbers.

They believe that if we touch a three-legged wild boar it will bring better fortune. Here is a video and some pictures I took today. I will tell you if I have gained any fortune after a few days.
According to the people around here, the wild boar came from the nearby hill. It started off when the Indian temple started to give away food to these wild boar after prayers. Thus when these wild boar heard the bell ring during the prayers, they will all gather at the temple.
Best time to visit this temple is on Saturday and Sunday. But Monday is rest day for these wild boar as they will be over fed by visitors who come from as far as Singapore and Penang.
