From the Wareham Department of Natural Resources:
Tonight, Officers from the Wareham Police and the Natural Resource Dept. captured a fleeing fugitive using a rope and some dog treats. A criminal with a nack for canine cuisine? No. A ham on the lam!!
As seen in the pictures below, the now known swine named “Brady” was running down Fearing Hill Road in West Wareham! WPD Officers initially responded to the area around 7:45pm and were able to lasso Brady using a rescue rope bag which they had available in their cruisers. A Natural Resources Officer arrived, and while attempting to figure out a method of getting this 300 pound pot bellied pig to a safe place for the night - the owner was located just before 9:00pm.
Brady was NOT pleased to be put in the bed of the pickup truck to be brought home, but he is now safely back in his pen. Brady lives approximately 1 mile away from where he was found.
We want to thank everyone involved, especially the WPD Officers that initially responded to the call. You both did an outstanding job.
In case you were wondering, Brady made it home uninjured.
