Hilarious video catches cops getting out-maneuvered by speedy swine: ‘Just a couple of pigs chasing a pig’

Kentucky cops made light of a recent encounter with a porcine fugitive that set them on a merry chase alongside local residents that included live commentary about the swine suspect being “one of us.”

Bodycam footage from officers of the Louisville Metro Police Department was released Thursday, set to a silver screen-style soundtrack that ramped up the slapstick antics that took place on June 29.

“‘Just a couple of pigs chasing a pig!’ Oink! Oink!” began the Facebook post from the boys in blue accompanying the video that provided roughly a minute of highlights of the effort that took the better part of an hour. “A few days ago, 6th Division Officers received a call in reference to a daggum pig running around a neighborhood.”

“Ok, now we’ve seen it all. Imagine our surprise when we get on scene and that potbelly bad boy is running free as a bird!” LMPD described before explaining attempts to use a hobble as a leash as they worked with residents to attempt to catch the animal they dubbed, Mr. BaconBits.

“I don’t know whose pig it is. I’ve just been trying to keep it from getting hit [by cars],” one of the civilians could be heard telling officers as they arrived on the scene.

At multiple points throughout the chase, the good Samaritans could be seen slipping and falling in pursuit as the cops rushed to their aid and experienced their own failed capture of the runaway pet to laughter and quips that played on common anti-police rhetoric.

“He’s one of us,” an officer joked as, at another point, one could be heard stating, “Just a couple of pigs chasing a pig.”

When the animal had run itself into a backyard, a member of the LMPD was able to utilize a dog pole to restrain it until the owners had it loaded in a large crate in the back of their vehicle to bring home. Of course, the return of Mr. BaconBits did not occur until after the responding officers took time to capture a group photo with them and their fellow “pig,” all smiles after the hot pursuit.

The police added further commentary to the post viewed over 100,000 times on their social media page alone, including, “Chasing that pig was like looking in a mirror,” and “This scenario was NOT covered in recruit school.”

The injection of levity for what is so often a life-threatening service provided to the public was met with high praise and support from the community, as well as some additional pork puns, including one suggestion that “You could say he was released on his own reHOGnizanze…”

Another suggested that the officers should have had a BBQ to celebrate the capture, to which LMPD replied, “…we are not cannibals, we don’t eat ourselves.”
