SULLIVAN'S ISLAND, S.C. (ABC) -- Pigs might not be able to fly, but one decided to take a swim.

A wild pig was seen wading in the waves on Sullivan's Island Friday.

While temperatures felt hot enough to fry bacon, it's not known why the pig made his way to the water or where he came from.

Beach-goers called authorities and police arrived with animal control agents to capture the swimming swine, but not before capturing a few pig-tures. (snort).

The pig isn't the first odd sight on South Carolina beaches.

A 14-foot gator was spotted off the coast of Kiawah Island last month and 10-foot gator was shot and killed in the surf of Folly Beach in May.
