DARTMOUTH, Nova Scotia, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- Police in Canada managed to track down an escaped pig in a local neighborhood before returning it to its owner.
Halifax Regional Police shared photos of Cst. Cody Schultz as he knelt down with the fugitive potbellied pig.
"So this happened yesterday...We were called to the Russell Street area of Dartmouth to help return 'Kevin Bacon,' a potbellied pig who had strayed from his home," police said.
Schultz told the CBC his encounter with "Kevin Bacon" was the first time he dealt with a pig on the job and he enjoyed the opportunity to have a laugh.
"We located him in the north-end area and he was happy to see us. We had a little fun with him there," he said. "We got a few pictures with him and off he went with his owner."
