A wild boar broke through an apartment window in the northern city of Haifa on Wednesday, smashing objects in the home before escaping.
In video filmed by a tenant, the boar can be seen walking on a pair of desks in a room, before struggling to get back out the window.
The tenant can be heard calling to report the incident.
“Ask permission from the municipality for fencing because a boar entered my house,” she says in the video. “I wasn’t home. I came home and had a pig in the house.”
“It broke the window, it broke everything,” she adds.
The woman was apparently unharmed.

Feral hogs have acted increasingly brazen in Haifa and the surrounding Carmel region over the past few years, with several people injured in attacks. The coronavirus lockdowns, which saw public life and movement reduced, along with a ban in 2019 against culling boars in Haifa, has led to an increased invasion of the animals.
Boars, a species of wild pig found across Europe, Asia and North Africa, can grow up to two meters (more than six feet) in length, although most are smaller.
