It took over 45 minutes of chasing the pig to finally catch him and get him under control. Oh yes, we are all aware of the plethora of jokes this incident brings to mind.

The pig was eventually caught, as officials say the animal was brought to Stamford Animal Control while they try and locate its owners.
