Shelby Township police reunite pig with owner after funny adventure

SHELBY TWP. (WXYZ) - Police in Shelby Township responded to a call to pick a rather unusual suspect on Thursday: a pig.

The department posted the above picture to its Facebook page Thursday night.

Debbie DeRiemaecker tells 7 Action News that she was doing yard work at her home on Wolf Drive when all of a sudden a pig came barreling toward her. It chased her into the front yard before getting distracted by a decorative ball. 

DeRiemaecker wasn't sure what to do, so she called 911 laughing and explained the situation. Moments later, she tells 7 Action News, a cop car pulled up.  

We've learned the pig has been reunited with its owner, but not before pooping in the police vehicle. 

Luckily, police write on their Facebook page that the owner cleaned out the officer's car before taking the pig home.
