When Nashville native Anjie Giuffrida came out of her home on 34th Street North in St. Petersburg on Friday, May 17, she didn’t expect to see Laurel, a male pig digging holes in her yard. “I opened my gate to see if he was cool,” Giuffrida said. “He was obviously a pet because he came right in and I fed him apples and he wagged his little tail at me.” Giuffrida followed him around her fenced in yard from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., before bringing him to the SPCA in St. Petersburg. Between the swine corralling and the treats, Giuffrida’s Gulfport-based friend, Hill Vee, posted a couple “lost pig” alerts on various St. Petersburg and Gulfport community Facebook pages. Eventually, a post on the “Gulfport, Florida” page got a hit, and the owner, Lisa Shaffer, was reunited. “[Anjie] was thrilled to have the pig in her yard for the afternoon,” Vee said.
