It was a classic case of a ham on the lam.
Police in Maine's capital city found the owner of a 50-pound piglet that wore itself out while dodging traffic Saturday evening after presumably escaping.
The Portland Press Herald reports Augusta police went door to door looking for the animal's owner before it was found.
They say the pig was being cared for by a person familiar with farm animals until the owner was found.
The animal was in good condition other than being tired out from running around.
