This little Kaikoura piggy had lunch with police

By Ophelia Buckleton

A police officer and pig have become unlikely friends.

It could have been goodbye pork pie for the starving school pet, stranded in Kaikoura after this month's earthquake, if not for police feeding it.

New Zealand Police posted on social media today saying they were called when the wild pig stopped people getting into their school.

When Constable Toni Woodroffe turned up "the pig jumped up on her like a dog" because it was starving, according to the post on Instagram.

Woodroffe has taken the school pet food a few times so it wouldn't go hungry.
