Who ya gonna call when your pig gets stuck in a hole? How about Mountain View Fire? On Saturday, Henry, a 800+-pound boar, and a smaller 200-pound pig, fell into an 8-foot trench at One Badger Farms in Mead.
Farm owner Ethan Abbott said "I've seen firefighters deal with trenches, they know how to get people out of holes." Abbott got in the hole and pushed, while the firefighters pulled from above.
Henry has lived with the Abbotts for three months. He came from a petting zoo. The Abbotts took in Henry to bred him and to use him in an ambassador program to introduce children to farm animals.
Henry is quite a character. "Can't keep him penned up," Abbott said. Instead, Henry roams the barn yard. "Me and him have a level of respect, he pushes everyone else around," said Abbott.
And suddenly, Henry was out of the trench and running around the barn yard. The firefighters also went running.
Abbott said the firefighters went running when Henry came out of the hole because off all the noise he was making.
