A pig meant for slaughter escaped auction and was on the run for five days in Unadilla, New York.

Eventually, the animal was caught and the Delaware Valley Humane Society paid $10 (about R140) for him and took him to its shelter.

Named Myles, the pig now enjoys mushroom pizza, crackers and anything carbs, reported local radio station WBNG.

HuffPost reported that Myles loves to go for walks and welfare workers say he is “sassy” and throws a fit when he doesn't get what he wants.

Myles has now found a home on a small farm, where he'll be able to roam freely.
