TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - A runaway pot-bellied pig named Bacon turned out to be no match for an Ohio police officer armed with a blueberry breakfast bar.

Toledo police Officer Joe Okos (OH’-kuhs) calls himself the resident country boy on shift. So it turned out to be a good thing he was on patrol early Tuesday when he heard the call for help with corralling the 100-pound-plus pig.

Okos grabbed a blanket and the breakfast bar from a Toledo hospital and then began pursuit of the pig.

He and fellow officers cornered the pig and lured him with the breakfast bar.

Okos tells The Blade newspaper (https://bit.ly/1vskAax ) in Toledo that Bacon ate the bait while he tossed the blanket over the pig to calm him down and keep him from biting.
