Protecting Our Pigs in Osgoode Ward
Last week, City of Ottawa by-law officers were called to pick up a "pig on the loose" on River Road, near Mitch Owens Road. It took four people to lift the large porker into a vehicle to be taken to the City's pound at Leo's Livestock in Greely where it was held.
The next problem for By-law and Regulatory Services was to find the rightful owner of the pig on the loose. By-law called on the Rural Affairs Office to use their contacts in Osgoode Ward to assist with finding the farmer with the missing pig.
Staff would like to thank River Road resident Klaus Beltzner of Osgoode Ward, who after getting the call for assistance from the Rural Affairs Office, notified the City of the appropriate name and telephone number of a local resident looking for a missing pig, and helping the City reunite the pig with its owner.
Oh gracious me... are we hicks or what!!!???
