A lost pot-bellied pig is home safe and sound thanks to some helpful neighbours and two police officers.
The officers say they were called to a residential neighbourhood in Burlington, Ont., on Thursday morning by a man who came across a pig wandering in the street.
They say the man kept an eye on the pig as it moved to a yard, where it ate some shrubbery and nosed around the dirt. When officers arrived, neighbours who recognized the pig told them it belonged to a woman living in a nearby home.
One of the officers, Const. Renee Harnack, says she got a strap that’s meant for restraining suspects from her car, fashioned it into a leash and put it on the pig.
