From the Daily News:
A friendly, 58-pound pig - plucked off a Queens street on Father's Day - is heading to greener pastures.
The stray swine, named Wilbur by the city's Animal Care & Control staff, was found wandering around 31st Ave. and College Point Blvd. in College Point.
Police easily corralled the porky pedestrian into a carrier and brought him to ACC's Manhattan shelter.
"The pig cooperated," said ACC spokesman Richard Gentles. "He was unharmed and uninjured, but he was dirty and smelled like grease and oil."
While uncommon, it's not unheard of for cops and animal control officers to wrangle sheep, cows, goats and other unusual critters off city streets. Some are escapees from livestock markets while others are pets.
Gentles said Wilbur won't find his way on to someone's dinner plate. Instead, he is going to live at a sanctuary outside the city.
Also, the Queens County Farm Museum has stopped selling pork.
