This giant pig named Pog became the talk of the town when she broke loose for a leisurely stroll.
Pog, a pet pig who weighs more than 650 pounds, escaped her home on September 1 and took a walk through a quiet neighborhood in Ipswich, Suffolk.
Of course, seeing a pig wandering the sidewalks, especially a pig that large, was a bit of a shock for local residents, who couldn't stop gawking.
Avon deliverer Sharon Wootten was no exception. The 44-year-old happened to be driving by at 7:15 p.m. when she spotted Pog, and captured her stroll on camera.
In an interview with The Sun, Wootten said that seven-year-old Pog was clearly enjoying her walk, which lasted "a good hour."
"Pog was wandering around, having a good snuffle and a snort," Wootten said. "She seemed very happy."
Though Pog's owner was trying to coax her home by tapping her occasionally with a small stick, Wootten said that Pog, like all pigs, has an independent streak.
"Pigs that size have a mind of their own," she said. "If Pog wanted to go to the left she was going to the left."
A few motorists stopped to offer help. Though there wasn't really anything they could do, Sharon said she thought the owner was glad for the conversation.
"She might have felt like a bit of a plonker just standing at the end of the road with a pig otherwise," she said.
This escape wasn't Pog's only adventure. Two years ago she became a social media sensation when she was caught snoozing in front of the television of a home for sale with the Ipswich-based estate agents Keystone. The one-bedroom property sold the week after it was first advertised for more than the asking price of £100,000.
Maybe Pog should take strolls more often.
