It's not quite clear where this not-so-little piggy was headed, but he sure didn't stay home.
Police brought the big to the Freeborn County Humane Society, which wasn't exactly equipped to handle a mammal with hooves.
“We’re all scrambling a little bit to try to figure out what to do and how to keep him comfortable. So right now he’s in a dog area, he likes the dog beds,” Christa DeBoer of the Humane Society told KIMT.
It's not clear where the pig came from, but he could have been someone's pet. The Humane Society wrote on Facebook that the pig is tame, "familiar with people and enjoys being fed snacks."
A volunteer is bringing the pig to a "very piggy knowledgeable rescue" in Isanti, the Humane Society said, noting the pig "will be a pet, not dinner." They're slated to head there Sunday.
If anyone knows who the pigs belongs to, they're asked to contact the Albert Lea Police Department, ABC 6 says. Having a pig – or any other type of livestock – within city limits is against city code.
