Police officers in Ohio were convinced a man who called 911 about a pig following him was drunk and hallucinating. It turns out the caller was telling the truth, and “very sober.”
North Ridgeville police officers received a call just before 5:30 a.m. Saturday from a man who said a pig was following him while he was walking home from the Amtrak train station in Elyria. The caller added that he “didn’t know what to do.”
Police officers were skeptical to believe the man and thought he was intoxicated and walking home from the bar. But the officers’ theory was actually wrong. Not only was the man very sober and walking home from the train station (like he said), a pig was actually following him.
One of the officers managed to get the pig into the police cruiser and take him to the city’s dog kennel. By 8:23 a.m. Saturday, the pig was returned to its owner, whose identity was not revealed, police said.
