Police help lost little piggy get all the way home

Naturally… 😉

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.

Man charged in Brockville, Ontario after fight over whether Earth is flat or round

Naturally.

Police and firefighters were called in after a heated discussion over the shape of the Earth reached fiery levels in eastern Ontario.

Police in Brockville say they were called to St. Lawrence Park on Monday after an intense argument between family members.

They say a woman who insisted the Earth was flat was locking horns with her boyfriend’s father, who argued it is round.

Investigators say the 56-year-old man grew so enraged that he started throwing things into their camp fire, including a propane cylinder.

Firefighters were called to put out the flames.

Police say the man took off and will face a mischief charge.

They say “neither party would change their views.”

What a shame.
