Cops in one Ohio town got an usual 911 call over the weekend. It was from a man who said he was walking home from an Amtrak station.
And, according to the man, there was a pig following him. And he didn't know what to do about it.
In a hilarious Facebook post early Saturday, cops said "night shift responded to the obviously drunk guy" who must have been "hallucinating" and found instead a "very sober male" walking east on Center Ridge in Elyria. He was, in fact, walking away from the Amtrak station, not from a bar, as they thought.
"Oh, and he was being followed by a pig," the post said. "Yes, a pig."
An officer managed to get the pig into his cruiser, where the animal was seen appearing to rest comfortably on the black leather seat. It was then taken to a secure location and returned to its owner hours later.
The North Ridgeville Police Department also preempted any attempts to poke insensitive fun: "Also, 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. Have a great day."
