BESSEMER CITY, North Carolina (CNN) -- After a destructive four-day rampage through the gardens and yards of Bessemer City, North Carolina, the town's most wanted porcine fugitive is finally behind bars.
The white pot-bellied pig who had caused so much trouble, and prompted any number of calls to the police from perturbed residents, was captured by officers Tuesday -- but not before the wily beast led them on a wild pig's chase that left officers hitting the ground and gasping for breath.
