COBB COUNTY, Ga. — A runaway pig, loose for a week and a threat to run out onto I-75, was captured Sunday by animal control officers, Officer Joe Hernandez of Cobb County police said.
During rush hour Thursday, traps were set and attempts made to catch the pig near the I-75 ramp to Chastain Road, Hernandez said. Traps were brought to the scene to lure the animal. Officials were concerned the pig would cause an accident if it scampered onto the freeway.
