A momma pig and her babies led Cedar Park police on a chase over the weekend after they escaped a Houston-area barn. But police managed to wrangle the pigs with some creative thinking. 

The police were called into action June 30 after the pigs escaped and traveled about a mile into a Cedar Park neighborhood.

PIGLETS BORN: Houston Zoo shows off adorable, newborn piglets

That’s when Animal Control Supervisor Lacey Clemons and Animal Control Officer Amber Smith used the only thing they had in their vehicles: Cheetos and Doritos.


The sow was far too large for them to get her in the Animal Control truck so Smith and the pig’s owner walked her home while the piglets got a ride home in the truck after the officers managed to catch them all. 

No word if any of them “wee wee wee” all the way home.
