Pigs Running Loose In Walsh After Student Sets Pigs Loose In Walsh
WALSH HALL — It was reported around 9:45 PM on Tuesday that at least three pigs were running through the halls of the fifth floor of Walsh Hall. It was unclear where the pigs had come from or why they were there.
The Boston College Police Department (BCPD) was called to the scene in an attempt to corral the out-of-place animals, but did not find much immediate success.
The initial efforts were led by Officer Steven B. Abe, who is not related to the pigs in Walsh. When Officer B. Abe was asked about efforts to locate the pigs, he told The Classic that he was not prepared to issue a statement on “these damn pigs running loose in Walsh” at such an early stage in his investigation.
Peggy Blanchet (LSOE ’22) was one of the first students to report the pigs.
“I was walking to the elevator with my laundry and I heard this noise that sounded like my roommate Jessie snoring,” Blanchet said. “ Then something came and knocked over my laundry basket. I didn’t realize it was a pig until I saw it running away with my bra stuck to its head.”
At press time, BCPD told The Classic that it was “very likely” that another pig was at large in Walsh, and that they would be leaving an officer there for the remainder of the evening, “just in case.”
