North Ridgeville Police Save Man From Persistent Pig

Posted By on Mon, May 21, 2018 at 9:47 AM

  • North Ridgeville Police Department
North Ridgeville police assumed the Ohio man was drunk or on drugs. Why else would a person call authorities to say a pig was following him on his walk home at 5 a.m. on a Saturday?

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.
