Pig found by Brimfield Police Department makes its way safely back home

BRIMFIELD, Ohio - The black-spotted little piggy found Friday by Brimfield police officers made its way safely back home.

Chief David Oliver posted the pot-belly's picture to the department's Facebook page late Friday morning. The piggy was found along Saxe Road and "may have been going to the market" joked Oliver in his post.

About an hour later, a woman named Latasha commented that the pig looked like her cousin's and she was getting a hold of him to see "if his pig had escaped."

Sure enough, the little piggy had a home.

"Yes, it was theirs," Latasha commented. "She called and said she just got done picking him up from u guys, lol."

"Great! We would have hated for him to do hard time. Such a nice little guy....Chief."

"Have u heard him when being picked up??? So funny...Him being scared isn't funny, but the noise he makes is."

"Yeah....we heard him...He squeals like....well...a pig.....Chief."

One fan of the chief's clever posts, Anita, commented, "that's quite different than finding a dog!"

"Anita...yes it is; however, we are an equal opportunity police department....Chief."

The Facebook post garnered 52 comments and 89 likes. You can read the banter between the chief and residents by following this link: https://www.facebook.com/BrimfieldPolice. More than 4,100 people "like" Brimfield's Facebook page.
