Lone pig arrested by Beaverton Police

It’s almost like the time scanner traffic said there was a pot belly pig running around the streets of Spokane on Thanksgiving, but that was never confirmed.

But this is:

BEAVERTON, Ore. (AP) — It’s not the usual thing in the Portland suburb of Beaverton, but police say there was indeed a pig running along city streets.

Officer Mike Rowe says a caller described the animal as “a regular farm pig.”

By the time officers responded Thursday, a resident had corralled the animal in a yard.

The Oregonian reports that one officer was a former member of Future Farmers of America so he helped get the pig loaded into a department van and transported to a nearby animal shelter.

Now the search is on for the pig’s owner.
