Some quick thinking police in Portland, Oregon solved a potential traffic problem by coaxing a portly pig out of a roadway using snacks.
Police say the oinker was in the middle of a street and tried chasing it down to prevent people from crashing.
Finally, they decided to use a better plan – snacks!
The pig was ready to live up to his name -- and pigged out on Goldfish crackers and cookies -- though he politely passed on the Nacho Cheese Doritos.
Once an animal rescue group arrived, the question was: How many people does it take to put a small pig in a pen?
Apparently, the answer is seven.
