Cop captures escaped 1000-pound pig

Owner Frank Martino said Bruno has escaped three or four times


By PoliceOne Staff

GEORGETOWN, Mass. — When Officer Henry Olshefsky received a call about an escaped pig, he thought of a small, pink pet.

But when he arrived, he discovered a 1,000-pound pig named Bruno hanging in a woman’s front yard, Fox 25 Boston reported.

"Because it is a small town, we were able to locate someone who knew someone who knew where the pig lived,” Olshefsky said.

Owner Frank Martino said everyone knows Bruno and he’s escaped probably three or four times since he was a baby.

"We didn't know how big he was going to get so now we have to think of a new way to lock him in with a padlock, that type of thing,” Martino said.
