Wandering Pig Found Near I 10

Maybe now you can say you’ve seen it all–that is if you spotted the one-hundred pound pig wandering through a neighborhood near I-10 and Fulton in recent days.

“We were able to determine the pig actually did have a home–but it turns out his owners moved out that weekend and left him behind” Lisa Norwood with Animal Care Services told KTSA News, adding it took a little bit of effort to corral him.

“Once we got him here to the shelter, he calmed down a little bit and figured out things weren’t half that bad” Norwood said.

The pig, now named Gustavo, is expected to be ok.

“He was incredibly dehydrated, very very sunburned, and had a few lacerations from his adventure over the weekend” Norwood said.

Owning that type of pig in city limits is illegal. Ultimately, Norwood said he’ll likely end up with a rescue group.
