Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Police in Oregon shared photos from their repeated encounters with an "ungodly fast" pig that has been dodging capture since the year began.

Tukwila Police said they first received reports of a pig on the loose Monday, and the department's Facebook page variously referred to the porker as Wilbur, Nelson and ultimately by the real name revealed by its owner, Monty.

"Officers at one point had the perp cornered but he is ungodly fast and quickly outran us into some nearby bushes where he disappeared. Nelson 1 - TPD 0," police wrote in a Facebook post. "We shall meet again, Nelson!"

The pig resurfaced Thursday and police posted they were hot on his trail.

"*BREAKING* We are in pursuit of Monty again!" police wrote.

An update later in the day included photos from the pursuit, but police admitted the pig had once again escaped the long arm of the law.

"Monty has continued his felonious streak and escaped from us again. We had him briefly cornered but he sprinted past us. We located his owner and spoke with him. We also came across a rooster and some chickens," the post said.
