LANGLEY, B.C. - Students at a Metro Vancouver elementary school had a bit of excitement during recess when a porky intruder decided to join them in the schoolyard.

School administrator Marie Fraser says children were playing outside Ecole des Voyageurs in Langley on Monday when a 180-kilogram pig meandered onto school property.

Fraser says the school immediately declared a so-called code yellow, the children were shuffled inside and police were called.

It took Mounties two hours to corral the pig, named Pork Chop, who had escaped from a nearby farm when the gate was left open.

Fraser says the pig clearly had no intention of leaving the school.

She says Pork Chop might have wanted to stay and learn some French. (Global)
