Time to fire up the grill!

They're fortunate to have had a member of the Royal Highland Hogsiliers, the "Queens Own Pigsmen" on their force. Otherwise, by Gawd, it could've been bacon!


You guys like jokes, right?

Semper Oink!

The pig was going commando? Whut?

Pe Pe Pe Pe Pepper, the pi pi pig was pr pr pr pr probably looking for Pe Pe Pe Pe Petunia.
Th-th-th-that's all folks!

Why does the photo show two women officers wrangling the pig, yet the story gives all the credit to a man? Typical!!

it was bedded down under a police blanket.

Mmmmmm...pigs in the police blanket.

That'll do pig, that'll do.

Typical lax reporting. Noi word on the fate of the rabbit.

Couldn't they have just used Pepper spray?

*OINKSNORK!@ Layzee*

This story is full of hogwash. The pig was obviously a pet, not a farm animal, and not a "large pig."

I've tackled loose pigs that weigh more than I do. You grab them by the ears, hang on, and try to steer them in the right direction. The pig naturally objects loudly as it drags you through the mud, so you have to curse at equivalent volume: great entertainment for everyone around.

I thought this was an article about Rush Limbaugh, but then saw that it was a large black pig...

What?

Good to see that expensive military training being put to good use. I suppose "pig wrangling" was a main subject in basic training.

Didn't see any references to mothers in-law...

I thought hairy-handed gents ran amok in Kent.

Ralph, I've grabbed a few pigs by the ears in my day, IYKWIM. They did not object loudly or otherwise.

'"He reported to me afterwards that he always had a way with animals," said Insp Simons Collins.'

and how does he have his way with animals?
