Portly Porker Nicknamed ‘Carnitas' Found in Indio to Be Reunited With Family

This little piggy went on the run.

Police Thursday were looking for the owners of a chunky black pig found wandering around an Indio neighborhood.

The Indio Police Department received several calls Thursday morning about that a pig seen roaming near the area of Arabia Street and Avenue 44.

Police responded and quickly spotted the hoofed mammal they named "Carnitas.''

"He put up a little #piggyfit but with some help from IPD Officers and Animal Control, he was safely loaded up and transported to #thepighouse,'' an Indio PD social media post reads.

Thankfully, Riverside County Animal Services were able to assist in finding the sauntering sow's family.
