ST PETERSBURG, FL (WFLA) -

St. Petersburg Police are wondering if you know the owner of this pig.

He was picked up near 810 11th Street North Monday afternoon. St. Pete Police say they were called by a neighborhood resident who noticed the pig with no where to go. 

Neighbors say they've seen the pig in the area before, leading police to believe it lived nearby. The pig was taken to a local vet, where it was determined it did not have a microchip, so they took the pig to the SPCA. 

Police say the pig was "very friendly" and must be a pet because he appeared to be looking for food.

"He was a pretty happy guy, hopefully we can find his owner," they say.

They are asking anyone with information on where the pig belongs to call 893-7780.
