Pet pig found in Wyoming after surviving sub-zero temperatures

This little pig has disappeared.

A pet pig named Ms. Piggy was rescued in Cheyenne, Wyo, after managing to survive sub-zero temperatures for 48 hours, according to Cowboy State Daily.

On Tuesday, a report of a pig “running wild” arrived at the Cheyenne Police Department. Around the same time, a Nebraska family that made a pit stop on a trip through Cheyenne reported that their female baby pig had gone AWOL.

“They had stopped for a pit stop and the pig got out. I believe their young daughter let it slip,” said CPD Animal Control Supervisor Elizabeth Wagner.

The pig disappeared for two days in sub-zero temperatures, managing to evade CPD officers searching through the snow.

“It was really cold and snowing at the time,” Wagner said, explaining that the temperature “was actually negative, and we even had winter storm warnings that night.”

Although the pig was “running pretty fast”, when she was finally spotted she was rescued and taken to an animal shelter.

Her family returned from Nebraska and found Mrs. Piggy five hours later.
