If I have the chance of sighting wild animals I 'd just like to take photos of them from a close but safe position -provided I can grip my camera.
Although I agree that wild animals can cause certain degree of danger, I would choose to leave them there and not to hurt them. Nowadays wild boars are getting less & less common in HK already, who knows that one day they may totally vanish. I also met wild boars (1 big and 2 small) at Pak Lap 3 or 4 yrs ago, but they saw me and ran quickly when I was adjusting my camera. In this case I prefer to lose my tent and food but want to see wildlife remains in our limited natural areas, it will be too late when one day they become another 'protected specie'. I sometime find dead snake killed by people on roadside, I think snake (regardless big or small venomous or not) just part of nature (part of the food chain in the ecology), I suggest we respect and leave wildlife in its wild way as long as it 's not attacking you.
