Having pets is something that a lot of families have and what others desire as it does take a lot of money, time, and effort to take care of them. There are some common pets like dogs, cats, hamsters, fish, birds, and other small animals which are what most families have, but not all. There are those families out there that like to house exotic pets such as snakes, lizards, horses, and other farm or wild animals. Michigan is one of the states that allows you to have exotic animals as pets, but farm animals are usually kept on farms.

With that being said, you will find the occasional chicken or goat within a residential neighborhood alongside the lizards and snakes. For the most part these animals are accepted in their communities as long as they are quiet and don't cause problems but not all animals are created equally. I'm not sure how I would react if I were to stumble around my neighborhood but that's exactly what the residents in this Michigan city experienced.

While scrolling on TikTok, I stopped in my tracks when I saw what I thought was a pig running around a residential street. Once I realized it was a pig, I was intrigued on how it ended up in the area but once I noticed it was running around the streets of Detroit, Michigan I was absolutely floored. Can anyone tell me what a pig was doing running around the narrow streets of Detroit? Take a look at the video below:

This isn't even the FIRST time that Detroit has had a wild pig running around the streets of the city, in fact the most recent time was just 3 months ago. That also wasn't the first time someone had discovered a wild pig in the city as a hoarder was holding one in his basement before he passed, and they found the hog while cleaning out his home. You can see more on both of these instances below:

I Experienced My First Pig Race And It Was Epic

When I am asked if I want to go to a local festival normally I am for it because you can enjoy some good festival food. I would say that very little percentage would ever say "I love festivals because of pig races."

This 4th of July I had the chance to experience my first ever pig race at the North Brunswick Youth Sports Festival and I will say that if you have never experienced that you are missing out.

The coolest part was that you can place a "bet" on the pigs that you think will win without seeing the pig. The more races you win the bigger the prize you win.

All the racing pigs have some great names from, Tyrone the Terrible, Lady Hog-ga, Cardi P, Sizzling Sausage, Britney Spear-Ribs, and more.

I had the chance to be the cheerleader for one of the racing pigs and since my pig won I got an awesome sticker that said "promote pork. run over a chicken today."

With all that said, you must experience pig races and it'll be the time of your life I guarantee it.
