GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — To serve and protect is a common police motto. In western Michigan, it extends even to pigs.

Grand Rapids police say they rescued a 6-month-old pig named Ramone on Thursday. The pet got away from his home in the city's Eastown neighborhood and approached Officer Jeremy Huffman.

Huffman put the porker in the back seat of a squad car. Grand Rapids police posted a picture on its Facebook page, where it's received more than 1,200 "likes" and more than 180 comments.

Police ask that you please hold the jokes. The department says it's heard them all.
