Imagine this: One tiny (and probably scared) little pig weaving in and out of traffic with a group of people chasing after her, the collective rescue effort lead by none other than a friar.
That was the scene Tuesday morning in San Francisco, California, and it was definitely an abnormal start to the day for Brother Damian, a member of the Society of St. Francis. The Franciscan friar was in the middle of a morning prayer service when he was alerted to the pig running amok just outside and knew he had to take action.
He left the prayer service and led a group of other Good Samaritans in the chase. "It was a quick little piglet," Brother Damian told SF Gate.
