Some people wake up on Sunday morning to bacon, but not an entire pig. A great ‘good news’ story in the Miami Herald detailing the rescue of an escaped pig. See: Pinecrest pig chase: Kids, nanny, neighbors and cop join hunt for escaped pet, by Brittny C. Valdes, who reports that a potbellied pig named Mud had escaped from a Pinecrest home on the morning of Sept. 22.
Officer Edison Cruz of the Pinecrest Police Department’s crime-suppression unit was monitoring the neighborhood when he received the call that a pig was being chased by dogs down the street. After searching for 30 minutes, Cruz found nothing.
But an hour later — after Falcon, her three kids, their nanny and a group of neighbors on Southwest 61st Court tried to capture Mud — Cruz received his second call about the elusive pig.
At least the pig was not greased.
Read the details on how the pig was eventually cornered. Mud broke the first restraints. Come on Ms. Valdes, how could you resist the urge to report that they tried to “hog tie” Mud?
Glad to see it turned out well for all involved.
