(WTRF) – Body-worn camera footage posted by the Ohio State Highway Patrol shows troopers from its Chillicothe Post working together to capture a small pig after it was spotted running along US Route 35 in Ross County on September 5.
The video shows troopers securing the wily animal in the brush to the side of the road. As they start walking back to a patrol vehicle, with the pig oinking loudly, one trooper asks the other, “Now what?”
The video then shows the pig being carefully placed in the back of the car.
In a Facebook post, OSHP said the pig, which they had affectionately named Pearl, “DIDN’T make it to the market” and had come “to a safe end.”
Pearl was taken to the Ross County Humane Society “where they found her a new home to live out her days,” the OSHP said.
