Call a ham-bulance! Newnan give hilarious account of trying to capture escaped pigs

COWETA COUNTY, Ga. — Newnan police officers got a little more than they bargained for Sunday morning as they tried to capture two rogue pigs that were loose downtown.

The police department posted a hilarious account of the pursuit on their Facebook page, adding the hashtag #PigsChasingPigs:

“You may have noticed some police activity this morning on East Broad Street... well that’s because we have located the missing pigs! The problem is, this is as close as they would let us get to them before fleeing into the woodline.”

TRENDING:

The story only get “punnier” from there.

“They’re very quick and nimble, as if they were in the Olympigs or something. Or maybe they do karate where they learned to pork chop. Either way, we can’t chase them anymore, or we’ll need a ham-bulance.”

Greetings Newnan!! 🌅 You may have noticed some police 👮🏻‍♀️ activity this morning on East Broad Street... well that’s...

A BOLO remains for the pigs. Police said one is black and the other is white/pink with black spots. They believe they are someone’s pets but the animals' owners have moved away from the area.

Anyone who spots the animals or is able to catch them is asked to call 770-254-2355.
