MERRIAM, Kan. - The Merriam Police Department is dealing with a somewhat odd case of "lost and found" today as they found a pig wandering the area.
The small black pig was found near Brown Memorial Park on Booker Drive in Merriam around 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.
The staff at Great Plains SPCA have given her the name "Petunia."
“We went through Gertrude, to Piggy Pig Pig, to cute little black pig and Petunia kind of stuck with everybody,” Sydney Baker, intake manager at the shelter, said.
Petunia will remain at the shelter for five days to give time to be claimed by the owner. After that, she'll be put up for adoption.
If this is your pig or you know whose it might be, contact the Great Plains SPCA at 913-742-7329.
