Man Calls Police for Backup. He Was Being Stalked by a Pig

2018-05-21 20:35
A man called 911 in the early hours of Saturday morning, May 19, asking for backup for an unusual problem—he had a pig problem. According to the man, he was being followed by a pig, and he didn’t know what to do. Police in Elyria, Ohio were convinced he was “obviously” intoxicated when they received the call at 5:26 a.m. “A pig. Riiiight. … He was at least drunk enough to call the police on himself while hallucinating,” the North Ridgeville Police Department wrote in a Facebook post. Night shift responded to the caller, and upon arrival they found a “very sober” man, and “he was being followed by a pig. Yes, a pig,” police shared. The man was walking home from an Amtrak train station in Elyria and was spotted being stalked by the pig at Center Ridge near Maddock Rd. A police officer “managed to wrangle” the animal to the car and eventually return the pig to its owner. They shared about the amusing event and posted a photo of the pig on Facebook. “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,” police wrote. “Have a great day.”
