Smokey, the pot-bel­lied pig is safe thanks to On­tario Provin­cial Po­lice.

Of­fi­cers from the OPP Brant de­tach­ment were called to a fam­ily home Tues­day morn­ing af­ter the three-month-old fam­ily pet es­caped, po­lice said.

Of­fi­cers drove around the fam­ily’s home on the Twelfth Con­ces­sion un­til they spot­ted Smokey.

“Af­ter a short foot chase (the of­fi­cers) caught the fam­ily pet,” Const. Ken John­ston said.

“Be­cause of the ded­i­ca­tion and compassion” of the of­fi­cers the pig was re­turned to its fam­ily.
