ROGUE RIVER, Ore. - It's not a call that police in Rogue River, Oregon normally receive.
They need the public's help to crack the case of the missing pig.
She was found wandering the streets and ended up digging holes in one homeowners yard.
It was early Monday morning when Janis Pugh stepped out on her front porch and saw a nearly 500 pound pig.
"I was just stunned, he was huge, and didn't seem aggressive. But when my dogs barked at him he started charging this way, so we ran inside," Pugh said.
That's when she called police for assistance, who were just as stunned as she was.
When they arrived they realized the logistics of what needed to happen was much larger than they could handle.
"It was too big to put into the back of the police car, it wasn't terribly cooperative," said Rogue River Police Officer John Foster.
