In a bid for freedom, pig stumbles upon New Hampshire voting booth
The New Hampshire Primary had a low turnout, but one pig was there at his assigned polling location bright and early! Okay, let’s rewind– a pig escaped from a farm, thrilled with his newfound freedom, and stumbled across a polling location during yesterday’s quiet primary. The 600 pound farm animal was found wandering aimlessly around the Pelham voting location.
Police were quick on the scene to, er, apprehend the big guy, who was shown in a video following officers around who perhaps had treats in their hands, trotting and grunting in circles around the police car not at all unlike a puppy. Too call it a “joy ride” as the report from the Nashua Patch does it sorely mistaken – farms aren’t at all a pleasant place to hang out as a pig, and it looks like he was making, and almost succeeded at, some kind of bid for freedom.
The pig was retrieved by his farmer owner, and is now back on the farm from which he ran away from.
