KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Olathe Police Department said Friday that a little pig who was rescued earlier this week will be getting a new home over the weekend.

The pig, who now goes by Baby Porky,  fell out or “tried to fly” out of a tractor-trailer that was traveling along I-35 on Monday, according to police.

Luckily,  someone saw Baby Porky along I-35 and pulled over to capture her.

Baby Porky will be leaving all of her dog and cat friends at the Olathe Animal Shelter to move to a farm this weekend, police say.
