STRASBURG - Strasburg police and a Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office deputy went into round-up mode Wednesday night when a pig frightened by a thunderstorm was found wandering around town.

The pig, owned by Buckey Lantz of Pouts Hill Road, broke out of his pen and fled to town during the fierce storm.

Police located the pig and escorted him home.
