400-Pound Pig Goes ‘Hog Wild’ On Colorado Crime Spree
A 400-pound pig that’s been terrorizing Aurora, Colorado has been captured. The 400-pound pig went “hog wild” on a Colorado crime spree. Now city officials have to figure out what to do with it.
Although the pig is currently residing at Aurora Animal Services, a field supervisor at the facility says the arrangement is only temporary. They are hoping the real owner will step forward soon.
Augusta Allen said, “I just hope he gets to a place that’s a good home for him and gets to stretch his legs.”
She has named the pig “Fred.”
WOWT-TV says Aurora officials got calls about a culprit. He was wreaking havoc all around the city. Allen said, “Through the police department, through our own dispatch of a disturbance of some property getting torn up, some traffic issues.”
“The first couple of times, we were unable to find what was causing the problems. We finally found him and got him rounded up. It took about eight people to capture him.”
Fred caused chaos in Aurora for much of the week. But Allen says he’s just a Teddy bear at heart. “He’s very sweet, very loving, loves the attention. He’s a big boar. He was enjoying his holiday of running around the city. Fortunately, he wasn’t hit by a car or created big issues for himself.”
