An abandoned pot-bellied pig had to be wrangled by Arizona troopers earlier this week along a northern Arizona highway.

According to the Arizona Department of Public Safety, troopers were called to an area along US-89 between Flagstaff and Cameron to help the animal, which had only an empty water dish nearby.

Troopers helped lasso the pig and were able to get it into a portable kennel so it could be taken in by the Coconino Humane Association.
