South Korean Military Issues Shoot-On-Sight Order for Wild Boars Crossing DMZ

The South Korean military has instituted a shoot-on-sight policy for wild boars coming from North Korea because of concerns over African swine fever.

According to a military official, it sent an order to general outposts at the inter-Korean border to immediately fire on wild boars found crossing through the demilitarized zone to South Korea.

The order follows the discovery of a wild boar carcass infected with swine fever in the DMZ near Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi Province. The military notified North Korea of the plan to prevent any miscommunication at the border.
