A post on Blackpool Police' s Facebook page said: "Thank you for all your comments and suggestions. Local PCSOs have made enquiries to trace an owner, we have liaised with several agencies also without success. We have confirmed the pig is NOT micro-chipped so 'Cookie' continues to be looked after by one of our Farmer Network Volunteers and is doing very well. In line with lost/found policy the rightful owner must come forward within 28 days with proof of ownership. Please be assured that after this time we will ensure the pig continues to have a happy life."
