Man reports persistent pig to police

Police are used to getting unusual calls, but one man in the US state of Ohio made a particularly memorable one in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Officers assumed the man was either hallucinating or drunk when he said a persistent pig was following him home.

"(We) responded to the obviously drunk guy walking home from the bar at 5:26 in the morning," they said on Facebook.

But when they arrived they found a "very sober" man who wasn't too keen on bringing home the bacon.

I liked this bit from the article:

"We will mention the irony of the pig in a police car now so that anyone that thinks they're funny is actually unoriginal and trying too hard," the police quipped.

Poor wee piggy. The victim here probably had a little left over food on him and the pig could smell it.

It's a good thing it was not a wild pig.

A couple of years back I had an Eastern brown bat in my house. My poor dogs were going nuts and I just couldn’t manage to block enough points in my house in order to sort of herd him back outside. So, I called animal control, but it was after hours so I got the local police desk. I told the officer my issue and they said they’d send an officer.

When the officer arrived it became clear to me that he thought I was either drunk, on drugs, or mentally ill. Fortunately, as he reached my living room area the bat literally flew into his face. This big strapping officer screeched like a little girl. At this point he was amenable to my telling him how I just needed some help in driving the bat out my rear sliding glass door (it was 10:00 PM at night BTW).

Pigs are as bad as the police when it comes to reliability and punctuality. When you need a pig you can never find one and they always end up arriving late when summoned. When you don't want them you end up with loads. That guy was lucky he only had one behind him. Usually the swine run around in groups. Given the right scent a full size pig can do a lot of damage to get to the source. Even more if its female and on heat.

I wonder if it was a pet pig that was lost and was just like a lost dog and only understood that people were the source of food and comfort. That pig looked awfully comfortable in the back of that car. It makes me thing it might not have been the first time it had been in one.

I would have taken that pig home and let it live in my yard. I don't want a dog, but a free pig...might be hard to pass up.

Where's the evidence that this particular pig was not, in fact, on it's way to market? :huh:

Now that's what I call " bringing home the bacon."

Perhaps the pig wanted revenge?

Al Gore was missing his Man Bear Pig? No wonder the guy was terrified.
