A wandering potbellied pig has made a name for himself in South Philadelphia.He is known as Runway.

The 150 pound porker was found roaming wild at Philadelphia International Airport.

Officials say he's been on his own for about a year.

It took six animal workers to corner Runway and take him to the Last Chance Ranch in Quakertown.

It appears that he was someone's pet and he just got too big to care for.

Workers say that Runway likes to ramble so they keep him in line with dog biscuits.
