Police officers come across all manner of things when they're out on patrol, but for WPCs Alison Reeve and Fiona Collins, New Year's Day 2013 will be one to remember.
The pair were on a routine patrol in Leicester city centre, when they came across a lost pig. He was wandering the streets, poorly and hungry.
If you or someone you know has a suitable home for Percy you can contact the RSPCA on 0116 233 66 77.
Here is a video of 'Percy', the pig who was found by Police wandering the streets of Leicester on New Year's Day.
He is now in an RSPCA animal shelter while a new home is found for him.
An 8 month old 'micro pig' has been found by police, wandering the streets of Leicester. Two officers spotted him while out on patrol on Paget Street on New Years Day.
'Percy' was taken to the RSPCA animal shelter on Scudamore Road in Leicester, where he's being looked after by the staff, while they look for a new home for him.
Percy was a little underweight when he was found, and had some skin problems, but is now thriving and getting used to his harness.
They believe he may have been a pet, that grew too big for its owners to care for him. Although he is doing well, the animal centre mainly caters for cats and dogs, and conditions aren't ideal for a pig, so they want to find him a new home as soon as possible.
