Footage of the incident was caught on camera and shared on social media.

The boar runs riot knocking people off their feet. Holidaymakers can be heard screaming in the background as it charges around the sand.

According to 9News, one person exclaims: "Jesus! It is attacking people! Let's all go into the water."

A group of men try to surround it and appear to chase it off the beach and back into the surrounding forest. But not before it knocks another unsuspecting holidaymaker over on its way out.

Never mind a bear, that's a boar with a sore head.
