This isn’t the first time a giant pig has escaped its pen and wandered through Salisbury.
On February 24. 2016, police officers found a pink sow heading towards the Salisbury City Centre.
Officers captured the pig and handed it to the Salisbury Council, who named it Porky.
A post of the council Facebook page said Porky was safe and well.
