A 200-pound pig named "Miss Piggy" escaped her home in Vista and roamed the streets for nearly 20 minutes. Eventually, she was corralled by her owners. NBC 7's Artie Ojeda reports.

A 200-pound pig escaped from her home in Vista on Friday morning.

"Miss Piggy," a 4-year-old pig, wandered out of her home around 6 a.m. this morning when the gate was found unhinged.

The pig wandered about a quarter-mile away from her Vista home, and the owners were able to corral her shortly before 6:30 a.m.

Miss Piggy was then picked up by owner Brianna Hockenberry and her boyfriend, and driven back home in a pickup truck.

Hockenberry said that this has happened before.
