Big Pig On The Loose

A pig is on the loose in East Texas.

Residents in Palestine have reported seeing a 450-lb. Yorkshire boar out on the town. On Friday, the pink pig ended up in the flower bed of Chris and Melissa Sanders.

The Sanders called Animal Control, but officers had no means to transport the pig. So Chris Sanders had an employee of his walk the pig down the street and back to its owner.

But over the weekend, the pig was back in the Sanders' flower bed.

Animal Control took the pig back home on Monday, but it seems this pig doesn't want to stay put. The pig reportedly did not hurt anyone. It was a friendly pig.
