Francis the Pig
|Site Location||East of the new Blue Grass Sod Spray Park on 48th Street.|
The legend of Francis began in 1990 when he escaped from a local abattoir. For nearly five months the fugitive roamed Red Deer's parkland, eluding predators and several attempts to catch him. This freedom-loving pig was finally caught in 1991. Unfortunately, Francis succumbed to injuries he received in his capture.
