Steve the Vietnamese micro potbellied pig was reunited with Brian Maguire and Bernadette Broadhurst on Friday. Broadhurst says a Ridley Township commissioner personally delivered the stray swine, days after he'd been taken to a farm by police.
Maguire said Steve had apparently escaped from his yard for a stroll and disappeared. When he checked with police to see if Steve had been spotted, Maguire said he was told the animal was found but sent to a farm because of a ban on keeping farm animals.
Maguire said feared for the 6-pound, 10-week-old pig's safety in a farm setting.
A Facebook group the couple set up following Steve's disappearance garnered about 2,000 supporters.
