Police wrangle runaway pig

Police turned pig wranglers in Saanich Friday morning.

They chased an escaped sow across the grounds of Elk Lake School after it fled its pen.

It took two officers with tie-down straps to wrangle the huge porker.

"The Saanich pound wasn't available, so we had to catch her before she tried to cross the highway this AM," Saanich Police tweeted.

"we sort of cowboyed up, if you will," Sgt. Jereme Leslie told CTV.

The pig was successfully returned to its owner.
