Escaped Pigs Caught

Three pigs, which were on the loose in Southampton, have been caught and the owners have agreed to sign them over to an animal sanctuary.

The Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs had escaped from a farm over the weekend (15th/16th January).

They were spotted wandering near roads and there were sightings of them in a housing estate in the Coxford area.

The RSPCA say they're now back in their field and they're talking to the owners about what happened.

It's claimed the pigs escaped after a "breakdown in the relationship" of the couple who run their farm.

In a statement, the RSPCA said:

"The owners of three female pot bellied pigs which were living in a field of Aldermoor Road, Southampton have agreed to sign them over to an independent animal sanctuary.

"RSPCA officers and the local police community support officer are now working together to catch the pigs and the Society will help by transporting them to the sanctuary."
