YORK COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – Two lanes of a road in York County were closed on Thursday as deputies worked to get a pig out of the way.

Two lanes were closed on Old York Rd. at Earnest Dr. in York County due to a large pig blocking the road and causing onlooker delays, according to York County Sheriff’s office.

They said the owners of the “road hog” were found, and deputies said the animal’s name was Papa Pig.

The pig was so large, he broke the owner’s trailer. The sheriff’s office used their horse trailer to help get him home.

“Papa Pig was wrangled up in less than three minutes by our Mounted Patrol Commander Mark McCarter. Mr. Pig is safely out of the road and on his way home,” the sheriff’s office said in a tweet.
