The Manheim Township Police Department received numerous calls regarding the fugitive swine before officers finally were able to track it down Thursday morning at a home in Lancaster County, the department said in a post on its website. But finding the animal was only half the battle, as the department said it was ill-equipped to catch, contain and even transport a hog of that size.
Eventually, the department requested the services of nearby farm animal rescue group Lancaster Farm Sanctuary. With the expertise of the nonprofit organization, located in Mount Joy, Pennsylvania, the pig dubbed by police as “Hamilton” was safely corralled and hauled off to the sanctuary’s farm for medical treatment.
