Pig in a Patrol Car.

A pig is captured by the... Cops. A runaway pig was attempting to enter a home and was subsequently captured by the cops.

During the early morning hours on Friday April 7, 2017, a resident in the 5000 blk. of Lehman Rd., Spring Grove, North Codorus Twp. was awakened by a loud banging on their exterior doors. The resident then discovered a pot belly pig was seemingly attempting to gain entry to the residence.

The resident and the responding officer finally were able to corral and cage the very irritated and non-cooperative animal. As is seen in the photo, the pig took a ride in a patrol vehicle to the SPCA in York and that agency fed and cared for the pig until its owner was located four (4) days later. The pig had wondered approx. 500 yards from its home apparently in search of its mate that had recently passed away.
