The Colorado Springs Police Department said Mooshu was hamming it up near the Clarion Hotel.

Apparently, the pig had wandered away from home about two blocks away.

It’s not clear if the piggy was on its way to the market.

“The pig was coaxed back into the yard with treats of what else — bacon — from the hotel’s buffet,” police stated.
