Hunting for 'Lucky' Wild Boars

Ever heard of the phrase, "You Lucky Swine!"?
Well, that is exactly the case in this mystique earth episode of wild boars coming to an Indian temple in Taiping, Malaysia. While the world is plagued with the Swine Flu epidemic at least, there are some who are least concerned about this due to the anticipated benefits arising from contact with these wild boars.

While all over the world, the mere mention of the word "swine,wild boars or just pigs" would make one grip in fear or instant terror. That is not the case with the people who come to this temple called "Jada Muniswarar Temple". Strangely, people are flocking in to get an opportunity to actually touch the wild boars which they believe can bring them good luck. Most of them who come here are the ones who are hoping to strike rich after buying some lottery tickets upon touching the wild boars.

Still, there are other claims, say the temple priest, that people who come here with ailments have also found cure upon offering their prayers.

These wild boars come here daily for food. But, they come in bigger numbers in the evening about 7pm when temple bells ring. It is almost like they instinctively or trained to know that there is food being served there. Normally, wild boars being very shy animal shun the idea of being close to the presence of human beings. But again, the same does not apply here.

Some sceptics believe that these are wild boars that are trained to be tamed & is merely a gimmick. But, we wouldn't know that for sure as no one locals have yet to dismiss this as a gimmick. Currently, buses full of local tourists also make this a place to visit in their tour itinerary.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. Swine influenza also called swine flu, hog flu, and pig flu. Swine influenza virus is common throughout pig populations worldwide. Thanks so much for sharing.

Hi Sam,
Welcome abroad.
Thanks for sharing your views about this subject here. Today, I hear that WHO declared the virus has further mutated & has become immune to the vaccine.

I hope that Science will step up & come with a fast solution to this global pandemic.
