Man Escapes With Pet Pig - Pig Attacks Police
<snip>

BOULDER CREEK, Calif. --A man and his pet wild pig facing eviction from their Boulder Creek home have eluded authorities -- the man by running into the woods, and the pig by attacking deputies.

Santa Cruz County Sheriff's deputies have tried numerous times to evict Christian Canabou from his home, but he always flees when they arrive, authorities said.

Canabou has now been ordered by animal control officials to evict the pig -- a 200-pounder named Kate. He was given until 10 p.m. Thursday to remove the animal from the property, where neighbors have complained it has become a nuisance.

But getting Canabou and the pig to leave hasn't been an easy task.

"The pig, and I don't know her name, is aggressive," sheriff's Sgt. Fred Plageman said. "It seems to be a domesticated pig, and on past occasions it has chased deputies around and chewed up part of a patrol car."

Deputies tried again to evict Canabou on Tuesday but found only the pig. They posted eviction notices and left the property.

"The rumor is that every time we go up there, the owner runs into the woods," said Mike McFarland, general manager of Santa Cruz County Animal Services. "To be boldly honest, we don't really want to take custody of a 200-pound pig."

2. Pigs are f***ing scary.
Its no joke! Pig are totally indestructable! First off, just because its shaped like a sausage on short, stumpy, stilts does not mean it can't move. Pigs are faster than you and me and thats enough! Their skull are so thick, you can't crack it with a baseball bat! I've seen a 200 pound pig run at a toilet bowl and crack it in half with its head, and walk away as if nothing happened. I'm sure the pig in that article did a lot of damage to the patrol car! Pigs are natural monsters! They'll shred everything in their path! Clever too. If a pig doesn't like you it will plot against you! You can see it in their beady little eyes, wheels turning, plans formulating, waiting for the right opportunity. They'll catch you with your guard down!

So remember, pigs while amusing, are no laughing matter!

3. You mean there's no professional courtesy between the pigs and the pig?

4. Ooooh, you're bad.
But--did I read that article too quickly? The pig is still alive, right? They didn't kill it? 'Kay, then it's hard for me to dislike the police officers.

5. I was making a rather obvious joke.
I have no issue with most officers. Really. :)

Just the vision of a pig chasing off the cops (there has got to be a joke in there somewhere)! Anyway, seriously an apartment doesn't seem to be the place for a 200 lb pig. But it seems to love its owner. At least it protects him!

On edit, I mean no disrespect for the cops.My brother used to be one and I know what goes along with that job.
