Giant pig goes on rampage through town after escaping from his pen

A huge pig led rampaged through an Australian town and disrupted traffic.

The sizeable hog, who is called Johnny, broke free from his pen in Salisbury, north Adelaide on Thursday.

Johnny was filmed trotting into the driveway of an apartment complex, blocking motorists from entering or exiting with his sizeable frame.

Jessica, who captured the magnificent beast in action, can be heard in footage of the incident exclaiming: “It’s huge.”

After its brief spell of freedom the impressive porker was recaptured and taken back to his home in a nearby resident’s yard.

Commenting on Instagram, many people expressed amazement at the swine.

One person joked: “Don’t judge. It’s just come out of self-isolation.”

Another added: “I thought it was a rhino but then I realised I didn’t have my glasses on.”

His reign of freedom did not last long

Four years ago Salisbury was the scene of another pig escape.

A pink sow was spotted heading towards the city centre, prompting a police rescue effort.

She was eventually handed over to the council, where she was anointed with the name ‘Porky’.

While not a pig based escape, in August last year a cow ran away from an abattoir in Carlisle, Cumbria.

Bewildered eye-witnesses first spotted the brown cow taking an early-morning stroll alongside a major road shortly before midday.

The freedom seeking mammal was at large for two and a half hours, before police decided to shoot her dead in a cul-de-sac.

It is not clear what threat the mammal posed to the community or why, as a Cumbria Police spokesperson put it, she needed to be “destroyed”.
