WAREHAM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Wareham Police had to use dog treats and a rescue rope to lasso an escaped pot bellied pig Wednesday night.

The 300-pound hog, whose name is Brady, was spotted running down Fearing Hill Road in West Wareham. That's where police caught up with him around 7:45 p.m.

The Wareham Department of Natural Resources said officers "were able to lasso Brady using a rescue rope bag which they had available in their cruisers."

A Natural Resources officer arrived, and Brady's owner was located about an hour later. Brady had wandered a mile from his home.

"Brady was NOT pleased to be put in the bed of the pickup truck to be brought home, but he is now safely back in his pen," Wareham Animal Control wrote on their Facebook page.

The department said Brady was not injured during his escape attempt.
