With the departure of their previous pair of pigs on their one-way trip to Mull, our crofter friends yesterday acquired two new pigs to rear.
As seems to be traditional, no sooner had they arrived than they escaped.
As we turned up to help, the first of the pair had already been caught. Agricultural college clearly teaches you how best to catch run-away pigs.
Regular readers might remember The Great Strontian Pig Chase in September 2010.
Just as on that occasion, I had cleaned my car inside only days earlier. So there was no way this pesky porker was climbing inside.
Fortunately, the van was close at hand. But as of writing, the second pig is still at large.
