Cops thought man who called cops about pig stalking him was drunk

Ohio cops say they believed a man who called 911 to report a pig was following him home was drunk — but he turned out to be sober.

Police responded to the man’s call, thinking he was drunk and walking home from a bar, at 5:26 a.m. Saturday, according to the North Ridgeville Police Department.

The man told police a pig was following him and that he didn’t know what to do, cops said.

When officers arrived at the scene near an Amtrak station in Elyria — they discovered the man wasn’t lying about the pig.

“Yes, a pig,” the department posted on its Facebook page along with a photo of the animal.

An officer managed to get a hold of the pig, placed it in his cruiser and took it to a dog kennel in the station, police said.

Police said the pig was returned to its owner later in the day.
