Sometimes police catch people speeding on the highway, and sometimes they catch loose pigs.

Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Coker responded after a pig was reported to be running loose on Interstate 40 Westbound in Farragut on Wednesday (April 13th).

Trooper Coker managed to lasso the pig using his tape measure, and says his father-in-law has a farm, but he would consider himself to be an “unregistered, uncertified farmhand.”

The pig, named “Calhoun” was soon reunited with its owner.
