On Friday morning I was alerted to a piglet walking along College St Belconnen.

Having the box brownie to hand i snapped off a few shots. one of which shows a small piglet, fossicking in the bush next to ahem the AFP buildings in Belconnen.

Pig on college street

This morning I was told that three AFP members were seen trying to catch said piglet late Friday afternoon. They were using branches off trees to try and distract him while another tried to catch him and hold him. I have no information on whether the piglet had been greased.

I expect he spent his weekend rotating slowly over an open fire (unconfirmed).

so did the AFP folks enjoy a nice suckling pig spit roast ?

Yeah, but the Golden Pig.
This one looks mud-brown.

Isn’t it the Chinese year of the Pig?

My caption would be: “lah lah la”

We did a massive double take while driving through the Benjamin Way / College Street intersection on Sunday morning. The little pig was still there at 10:15am, snuffling around in the grass.

I’ve seen chickens doing the wild thing on that street.

the ranger was called in the am, but i think they thought ‘porkies’ were being told, you know, pig loose at the afp hq…

not sure if they even bothered to turn up.
