Runaway Piglet in San Francisco Recaptured by Monk
The piglet was named Janice by her captor, Brother Damian
This week’s award for “Most San Francisco Story Ever” goes to the tale of Janice the piglet.
The intrepid animal brought traffic in San Francisco’s Mission District to a standstill Tuesday morning, darting between cars on the busy roads nearby.
Eventually, Janice was picked up by Brother Damian of the Society of Saint Francis, a nearby monastery of Franciscan monks.
“Only in San Francisco could a wayward piglet expect to be rescued by a representative of the Patron Saint of Animals,” Animal Care and Control spokeswoman Deb Campbell told CBS San Francisco.
Janice is currently resting comfortably. If she’s not claimed within five days, Animal Care and Control will likely turn her over to a rescue group.
Maybe she could go work for a tech company? We hear that’s a big thing in San Francisco nowadays.
