Campbell pigs apprehended after roaming the city for days

Posted: Updated:
CAMPBELL, Ohio -

For 12 days, two pigs ran all the way around Campbell.

They escaped from their owner who said she had just brought them home to keep as pets.

"I was told that they are tame pigs obviously," stated Mary Summerville of Campbell.  "They are not tame pigs when you chase them for two weeks."

Summerville's 10- year- old daughter explained the Pot-Bellied pigs jumped out of the car as they were trying to get them in their fenced-in area.

"The pig jumped out the window, got through the path, went by my grandmas," said Susan Tisler.  "I was running out chasing it barefooted. No shoes, no socks. The cats weren't even caring. They were just laying down."  

While the pigs were on the run, they dug into some yards like this one creating a mess too for some neighbors.

"If you would go on social media you would just see pictures of these pigs that were burrowing into the ground and tearing up the yards," said animal advocate Jason Cooke.

He managed to contain the animals on Oaxford Street after more than a week of them roaming the city.

Happy Trails Animal Sanctuary in Ravenna then picked up the pigs in Campbell Thursday night ensuring they will remain safe and unharmed.
