Several residents called Fairfax County Animal Control early this morning. An officer arrived on the scene, in the 7400 block of Long Pine Drive, at around 7:25 a.m. It took three hours to corral the pigs with the help from several bystanders and track down the owner.
It’s not totally clear why the pigs were there, but Caldwell says, “it is my understanding that their purpose is for human consumption.”
