Community Support Officers were today called to the chuildrens play area in the Marsh Park behind Weymouth Swimming Pool for an unusual task, the capture of a runaway pig. Two Officers arrived at the scene and whilst one ensured that the pig stayed in the childrens play area the other went to retrieve something to use as a lead.

On the second Officers return the pig approached the Police as if it knew what was about to happen, the Lady Officer managed to bravely get the noose around the pigs huge neck and create a make-shift collar and lead, no doubt hoping that that would be the difficult part! However, the pig had other ideas and decided that freedom of the noose was a reasonable goal and, amid a small crowd of onlookers, went into reverse.

A large pig is a formidable oponent in a tug of war contest and it soon became apparent that the two Officers were no match for the pig if they used only brute force. At one point the pig leapt up on it’s hind legs and jumped up in the air, just to prove that it didn’t have to go if it didn’t want to. However, smooth talking in calm tones eventually won over the wayward beast and the pig went quietly with the Officers back to the garden where it is kept near Chickerell Road in Weymouth.
