She wasn’t there for Bike Week, and she wasn’t sticking around for the Daytona 500, either. Instead, a brave pig was hanging around I-95 in Daytona Beach, Florida, simply doing what pigs do best: eating.
The pink porker was found rooting through the grass near the highway after a passing motorist called to report the beast.
“There’s a huge pig in the grass just standing there,” the caller told the dispatcher. “It’s not a wild pig, it’s a farm pig. He’s between the exit ramp and highway 95 and he’s big. He’s a big boy,” the caller added.
She was a big girl, too. The 200-pound pig was so huge, in fact, that the Daytona Beach animal control officer couldn’t fit her in his truck when he went to remove her from the grass divider near the highway ramp.
And while pig rescue isn’t exactly covered in police training, the cop still knew what to do in the unexpected situation. He called Deputy Darryl Weaver who drove over with a livestock trailer and transported the animal to the Halifax Humane Society where she will remain until her owner comes forward. According to police, the hog’s ears had distinct injuries on them for identification, so she belongs to somebody and will hopefully be claimed soon.
