‘Perp walk’ turned ‘pork walk’: Middle Georgia deputy escorts pig home

Not your typical “perp walk.” At least it wasn’t Sunday evening when a Peach County sheriff’s deputy responded to a 911 call about a large pig wandering around, the Telegraph reported Monday.

A woman called 911 shortly before 6 p.m. Sunday about finding a pig her backyard on Gracewood Road, a dirt road in Fort Valley, the newspaper said.

Peach County sheriff’s deputy Jason Spielman, who responded to the call, seemed to dread having to handle the animal. “I’m thinking it’s a wild hog, like one of these feral hogs,” Spielman said. “And I’m thinking, ‘Oh man, I gotta deal with this,’ because those things are nasty,” he told the paper.

But the pig turned out to be rather friendly.

When the pig started to walk up the road, Spielman decided to walk with it, the newspaper reported. He named the pig “Pork Chop” and said he didn’t want it to get hit by a car. “I never got that close to a pig before,” Spielman said.

“Pork Chop” turned out to be a family pet who had escaped from its pen and wandered away from home.
