Park Slope Pig or Fort Greene Pig?

September 28th, 2006 · 2 Comments

One sure way to catch our attention is a story about an animal, almost any kind of animal. We’re especially into urban wildlife stories, but also enjoy more run-of-the-mill creatures like dogs. In any case, we noticed on the Park Slope Forum that people are discussing a pig that has been spotted being walked down Seventh Avenue on a leash. The first report was posted on Monday and there have been a number of follow ups. Does this mean that Park Slope has its own pet pig? Or is it Emmett, the somewhat famous Fort Greene pig, about whom much has been written? (Our money is on Emmett, because how many pet pigs can Brooklyn have?)

    Emmett moves rather slowly, at least when I met him, and I know he likes to stop along the way to have people pet him. Not sure that he’d make it down to 7th.

    Park Slope pig: schnauzer-size, pink, frisky. Wasn’t Emmett.
