Around 7 p.m. came word that somebody had squealed to the cops and an officer was duly assigned to determine whether there was a pink pig with black spots roaming the Public Garden.

Mission Hill's Bobby the Pig? After all, he's been known to enjoy snuffling through the Public Garden.

But maybe not. Audrey alerted us to Back Bay's own Frank the Pig (Frank being short for Francis, as in, you know, that English guy), whose owner, Hayley, likes taking him out for constitutionals around the neighborhood

Newton Police report on a swine time this morning:

Call of a pig roaming around the Hagen Rd area. Sure enough when officers arrived they found Ziggy the pig in a back yard. A short time later the owner was found and said Ziggy got out through a hole in the fence of his backyard. The owner put Ziggy on a leash and took him home.

The Proper Bostonian reports on a happy encounter with the Pot-bellied Pig of Mission Hill and a not-so-happy encounter with a bowl of fish that somebody just left on the sidewalk on Beacon Street between Mass. Ave. and Hereford:

I hope someone with an aquarium comes along and rescues them.

Penny Cherubino photographed a woman walking her pig on the Commonwealth Avenue Mall in the Back Bay yesterday.

And then there's this video of three coyotes cavorting behind somebody's house on Weld Street in Roslindale (taken by a woman who obviously was keeping her toddler securely indoors):
