A concerned caller

A man from North Ridgeville, Ohio, experienced this hesitation after he called law enforcement in the area to report that a pig was following him everywhere.

He was walking home from the train station in North Ridgeville when he noticed the pig hot on his trail. He grew uncomfortable when it became clear to him that the pig was intent on going anywhere he went.

Concerned, he called the police and they immediately dismissed his distress call with the response, "A pig, riiight!"

Was he hallucinating?

According to a report on The Dodo, the North Ridgeville police department believed that they were dealing with a drunk man who was hallucinating, but they sent a dispatch to him anyway.
