A police officer in Massachusetts was involved in a strange call earlier this month.

According to community newspaper Wicked Local, a police officer in Georgetown was called into help corral a massive pig that was on the loose.

The paper reports a resident on Birch Tree Drive in the town spotted the large animal that had escaped from a nearby pen.

At first, Officer Henry Olshefsky doubted the pig even existed. But after talking to another neighbor, he drove around the neighborhood and spotted the massive creature rooting around in shrubs on a nearby street. He called it in to dispatch, but no animal control officers were available.

After an investigation, he learned the pig belong to an owner not far away.

“When it came back down to the road, I kind of used my cruiser to keep it going straight on the road,” Olshefsky told the paper. “I put the cruiser in front of the side streets so it couldn’t go down the side streets and it kept walking down the road."

Once the pig recognized its pen, it trotted back in.

The pig's owner thanked the officer and apologized for the escape.
