Halton Police Officer Reunites Owner With Lost Pig in Burlington
While one might expect to encounter lost dogs and cats from time to time in Burlington, few people expect to stumble upon a domestic pig who has wandered away from home.
Recently, Halton Police took to Twitter to praise Const. Renee Harnack for saving a lost pot-bellied pig (who they called a “friend,” which breaks my heart in a good way) who was found wandering around a Burlington neighbourhood.
According to a Canadian Press article, two officers were called to the area after resident spotted the lost companion. The CP reports that Const. Harnack managed to lasso the pig with a makeshift leash and then carry it—while it protested quite loudly—to its nearby home.
The CP reports that Chanel, the one-year-old pig, has been reunited with its owner.
