These Little Piggies Decided to Roam the Roads of Milton
MILTON — Police and the highway department spent part of Tuesday rounding up nine pigs that escaped their yard.
Police Chief Richard Krauss said he came across the pigs wandering in the area of Evergreen Valley and Winding roads just after 11 a.m. He said the sight isn't that unusual given the towns rural location.
"We still have lots of small farms. We are a very small town," Krauss said. "Unfortunately, cattle, horses and pigs get loose."
Krauss said they found the owner about a half-hour later and with the help of residents in the area and the Highway Department, they were returned to their owner.
