Pog the huge pet pig caused havoc after escaping from her home and running wild around a neighbourhood.
The 300kg porker didn’t get away unnoticed and attracted quite a crowd as she escaped from her home in Ipswich, Suffolk, on Thursday night.
But Pog seemed unfazed by the motorists as she wandered into the middle of the road, snuffling as she went.
Pog’s ham-fisted escape was caught by Avon deliverer, Sharon Wootten, 44, who was driving past at 7.15pm and couldn’t believe her eyes when she spotted the feral pig.
Pog, who is seven years old, was clearly enjoying her evening stroll and Mrs Wootten said her walkabout lasted “a good hour”.
“The owner was trying to manoeuvre the pig home but Pog just wanted to go for an evening stroll”, she said.
She added: “Pog was wandering around, having a good snuffle and a snort. She seemed very happy.”
The owner was trying to coax Pog home by tapping her occasionally with a small stick.
Motorists offered the owner assistance but she said that Pog was under control.
“Pigs that size have a mind of their own. If Pog wanted to go to the left she was going to the left”, said Mrs Wootten.
Mrs Wootten said she thought the owner was glad that people stopped and talked to the pair.
She said: “She might have felt like a bit of a plonker just standing at the end of the road with a pig otherwise.”
Pog previously enjoyed the limelight after being caught snoozing in the lounge of a house for sale with Ipswich-based estate agents Keystone two years ago.
The one-bedroom property in Ipswich, Suffolk, has taken social media by storm after ‘Pog the Pig’ was having a nap in the lounge.
The house sold the week after it was first advertised for more than the asking price of £100,000.
