Tired of NFL stories? Here’s a pot-bellied pig being chased down a busy highway by the police. Which just goes to show how far five-o will go to save some bacon.
Craig Forman took video that showed Henrico police officers trying to capture the pig earlier in the day. The pig was later caught running in traffic by Nuckols Road and Lake Brook Drive.
Officers confirm the pig is domesticated and neutered. An NBC12 viewer says they’re working with Animal Control to relocate the pig and have already found a home for it. Two other pigs at Henrico’s animal shelter are currently up for adoption.
This is the second pig sighting in the past week. There’s no word on whether or not it’s the same pig.
Upon capture, the pot-bellied pig was sentenced to five days of pink curing salt, brown sugar, and some maple syrup. Smoke it at 200 degrees over applewood for a few hours and let it sit in the fridge for 24 hours…
What? I’m hungry now.
Double points if that pig is served to reformed Muslims (see Authorities Investigating a “Bacon Hate Crime” Outside a Mosque. Yes, Really… and Let Them Eat Bacon: Denmark’s Delicious Solution to Protecting its Culture from Islam…) even though it might be considered Islamophobic.
Smoking pork might be a better pursuit than watching football, yeah?
