Residents in North East Valley and Normanby have reported seeing a pig wandering the area’s streets and parks at night.
Nikki Muir saw the animal waddling past her house on Monday night, but before she could get a good look it ran into nearby Chingford Park after her dog gave it a fright.
She posted about the encounter on a community Facebook page where others quickly confirmed they had also seen it walk past their homes.
Another resident Kelcie Dooley said the pig "casually" walked along Beechworth St with a car slowly following behind, two weeks ago.
A video of the animal, walking along the street, was also posted on social media.
While some described the animal as wild looking, Ms Dooley was not so sure.
"It looked like he wandered up the hill ... he didn’t seem very wild to me, or panicky about the car," she said.
She said her flatmates had also seen the porker on Monday night, this time in North Rd.
A Dunedin City Council spokesman said there was no record of any complaints or calls relating to a pig roaming the streets in North East Valley.
Staff had impounded a small pig found in Riselaw Rd last week and it had been reunited with its owner.
There were very few animal services callouts involving pigs in Dunedin, he said.
