This is the ridiculous moment a wild boar storms through a crowded cafeteria, sending dozens of terrified staff members fleeing out the door and onto tables.
CCTV camera footage captured the rampage at the staff canteen of the Ningbo Wote Automobile Parts company, in Ninghai County, Zhejiang Province, in
The video shows the canteen full of uniformed factory workers eating their lunch when one man starts running away and is quickly followed by numerous others as the boar storms through the room.

It runs up close behind a man who is trying to get away, before stopping abruptly and getting its head stuck underneath a seat which it frees by sending the chair flying.
One man is standing on a table with his back against the wall as the boar starts to eat food which had scattered on to the floor.
Another man climbs over the table into the corner of the room.
An unnamed male employee told local media: ‘I heard people screaming and thought there was some sort of argument. I went to have a look and the wild boar ran in through the door.
‘I ran! And told everyone else to run,’ he added.
One of his female colleagues recalled: ‘I didn’t even know there was a boar! I saw everybody running out and thought a gas cylinder was about go explode, so I ran too.’
According to reports, the boar entered through a backdoor in the kitchen and tried to escape through a window.
But it was too large and ended up smashing the glass, leaving it disorientated and angry.
It later ran out of the canteen and encountered a group of potato farmers, one of whom attacked it with a farm hoe but was bitten.
The animal was then killed by the other farmers after they captured it, with video showing the boar being carried away.

The Ninghai County Forestry Bureau said the potato farmer was being treated at a local hospital.
Bureau chief Wang Yuegan said wild boars have been on China’s conservation list since October 1998.
Between 20th April and 20th October it is closed season in the county and hunting of the wild pig is banned.
He said: ‘If a wild boar runs into your home but doesn’t pose an immediate threat to your life, call the police so experts can handle it.
‘If you’re unable to control it and have no other option but to kill it, then do that, because otherwise there might be worse consequences.’
