Saanich Police corralled a pig on the loose on Friday morning in Saanich.
We know we’re opening ourselves up for some colourful comments… The #Saanich pound wasn’t available so we had to catch her before she tried to cross the highway this AM #yyjtraffic.

As tweeted, Saanich Pound officers were unavailable, leaving the task to uniformed police officers.
“The pig was on the loose at Cordova Bay Road near Santa Clara Avenue at 645 a.m.,” said Saanich Police Sgt. Jereme Leslie. “At 7 a.m. the complainant called back saying she was headed for the highway.”
Three officers attended and managed “to put the grab on her” before she could cross the Pat Bay Highway.
She’s since been reunited with her owner.
The agency then tweeted “You can’t make this stuff up,” #saanichlife.
