Police officers in Ohio were persuaded a man who called 911 about a pig following him was drunk and hallucinating — but 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 human who told a pig was following him while he was walking home from the Amtrak train station in Elyria, located about 30 miles west of Cleveland. The caller added that he “didn’t know what to do, ” the department wrote in a Facebook post.
Police policemen were skeptical to believe the man and thought he was intoxicated and strolling home from the bar.
“Night shift responded to the patently drunk guy strolling home from the bar at 5:26 in the morning. He was at least drunk enough to call the police on himself while hallucinating, ” the police department said.
But the officers’ theory was actually wrong. Not merely was the man very sober and walking home from the train station( like he said ), a animal was actually following him.
“Yes, a animal, ” the department added.
One of the officers managed to get the pig into the police cruiser and take him to the city’s dog kennel — that doubled as a swine pen for a few hours.
By 8: 23 a.m. Saturday, the pig was returned to its owner, whose identity was not uncovered, police said.
“You’d have thought we would have learned our lesson after the kangaroo incident, ” the police department told, referencing to a 2015 incident when a “runaway kangaroo” was located in the town.
The police department posted a photo of the animal in the police cruiser on Facebook, which received more than 21,000 reactions, 11,500 shares and more than 2,000 commentaries as of Sunday morning.
