SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - The cops caught the pig, but she's already out of the pokey.

A swine named Sophie decided to go free range on the streets of Santa Monica this week, and police and public service officers gave chase after getting several calls about a hog roaming a neighborhood.

The Santa Monica Daily Press says Sophie was captured quickly and safely when four officers cornered her in front of a garage.

Police say Sophie is a pet who was visiting a friend's house when she escaped.

She was taken to an animal shelter where her owner picked her up Thursday.
