A strange call to Detroit police claiming a man-eating pig is living in a neighborhood basement turned out only half-true.

Attempts to remove the pig have not been easy. Officers first tried Chips' Ahoy cookies and Hostess cupcakes. A truck winch was brought in not long after.

At about 8 p.m. the pig was pulled out of the basement, although it was not captured on camera as SkyFOX was refueling.
