They corralled a crazy pig wandering a neighborhood in Woolwich Township on Saturday with a homemade lasso and dog treats. But the cops really brought out the heavy, punny artillery when it came to recapping the event on social media.

One commenter even got in on the fun: “Way to bring home the bacon, fellas.”
