Video shows runaway PIG on the loose on the streets of Ashfield!

Residents were shocked to see a surprise visitor out on the streets of Sutton this week - an escaped pig.

The porky runaway was Boczek (Polish for bacon) - a Kunekune New Zealand pig - and he belongs to Ashfield District Council leader Jason Zadrozny.

Coun Zadrozny said: “There are builders doing some work on a neighbour’s cottage and I think it spooked him out a bit.

“He’s a character about the same size as a Staffy.

“Luckily there were neighbours about and they phoned me straight away .

“People were feeding him and apples and all sorts. “He was just wandering around the cul-de-sac.

“I came down with a dog crated and enticed him in with my chocolate brownie.

“I would like to thank everyone who helped.”
