Police Chase Runaway Pig



Payson police officer Josh LaManna is in hot pursuit of a pig that escaped from private property Tuesday.

Police were called to McLane Road Tuesday after a driver reported there was a road hog in the area -- an escaped pig ignoring traffic rules.

"He was trotting along, heading northbound on McLane," Payson police dispatcher Jill Van Camp said. "(Payson police officer Josh LaManna) tried to pull him over. He failed to yield to emergency vehicles."

The fleeing pig was finally cornered in the Rock of Ages Lutheran Church parking lot and its walkabout came to an end, Van Camp said.

Wandering Wilbur surrendered without incident and was returned to his home on Airport Road.
