But when the police arrived on the scene that morning, they found an incredibly sober individual actually being tailed by a pig on his walk from an Elyria train station. Thankfully, police were able to corral the animal into the back of their cruiser, and the victim was left in peace.

"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 department said in a Facebook post (see below). 

The swine was then taken back to the department and kept in a kennel until its owner was identified and brought home.
