Cops And Locals Chase Runaway Pig Named Mr BaconBits

This funny video shows the moment cops and locals go on a wild chase after a potbellied pet pig went on the run around the neighbourhood.

Police were stunned to receive a complaint that a ‘daggum pig’ was giving neighbours a headache after it went on the loose in a suburb in the city of Louisville, Kentucky State, USA.

Louisville’s Metro Police Department 6th Division then rushed to the scene only to find a local struggling to keep up with the adventurous hog – named Mr BaconBits – on Wednesday, 28th June.

The department said in a Facebook post showing video footage of the chase that was obtained by Newsflash: “Just a couple of pigs chasing a pig!

“Ok, now we’ve seen it all. Imagine our surprise when we get on the scene, and that potbelly bad boy is running free as a bird!”

A woman in the video can be heard telling the officers upon arrival: “I don’t know whose pig it is.

“I’ve just been trying to keep it from getting hit.”

The police officers then immediately tried to get a hold of Mr BaconBits, but two of them ended up tumbling to the ground after the four-legged fugitive avoided being captured.

Police said: “We tried using a hobble as a leash, but our new friend wasn’t having it. Neighbors even pitched in to help us with the chase! Everyone fell down, and everyone laughed . . . ahh, good times.

“Eventually, the oinker made his way to a backyard where we were able to put a dog pole on him.”

Mr BaconBits’ was finally loaded up a large dog crate – brought from his owner – after which he was sent home.
