Suffolk police officers had their hands full when they came upon escaped pigs in Sayville on Friday morning.


Sergeant Theodore Martinez was driving his police vehicle on Sunrise Highway when he spotted what he thought was a pig on the side of the road. He then came upon a Hummer driving down the road with a trailer attached to it. He spotted one pig inside the open trailer. Martinez pulled over the vehicle and the driver said she was transporting four pigs to an animal rescue.


She had no idea that three of her pigs had escaped.

Other officers responded and with the help of employees of the Sayville Animal Hospital and the Town of Islip, they located each pig at separate locations on Sunrise Highway between Bohemia and Sayville.


Police say that the pigs appeared uninjured and were taken for evaluation to the Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center in East Quogue, the original destination.
