Austin Police gave a pot belly pig a lift to the animal shelter after receiving reports that the pig was in the street.
Police say a bystander found the pig grazing on something in the east bound lane in the 2100 block of West Stassney. He removed the pig from the street and stayed with the pig until an officer arrived.
Once an officer arrived on scene, the bystander placed the pig into the back of the patrol car.
On the way to the animal shelter, police say the pig pooped in the back of the patrol car.
