The Nebraska State Patrol says Wilbur, as he's now known, was running free in the median of a highway near Lincoln earlier his month.
A trooper managed to scoop Wilbur up and put the piglet in his patrol car. Wilbur was taken to a local humane society, where he's in the process of getting ready for adoption.
