1,000 Pound Pig Escapes From Massachusetts Farm

A one-thousand-pound pig escaped a Massachusetts farm on Friday, and ended up in someone's front lawn.

A one-thousand-pound pig escaped a Massachusetts farm on Friday, and ended up in someone's front lawn.

It was a strange call to begin with, but what Georgetown Police Officer Henry Olshefsky says he found, was shocking.

Olshefsky says police received a call for a loose pig. He says he didn't know what to expect. In his mind, he says, he was thinking it was probably a small pot belly pig or a pet.

What Olshefsky saw was a huge pig, a one-thousand-pound pig, to be exact, hanging out in Julia Gagne's front lawn.

Olshefsky says because it's a small town, police were able to find someone, who knew someone, who knew someone, where the pig lived.

Owner Frank Martino says the pig's name is Bruno, and that Bruno's somewhat famous in the town.

Martino admitted containing Bruno has been a struggle. Martino says Bruno has escaped three or four other times since he was a baby.

The owner says he'll have to work on better securing Bruno in the future.
