TROUTDALE, OR (KPTV) -

A pig was discovered Monday near a park in Portland, and now Multnomah County animal officials are hoping to find his owner.

A Vietnamese potbelly pig was found near Powell Butte Nature Park by Multnomah County Animal Services, according to a tweet Friday morning. 

The pig was taken in by MCAS and is at their shelter in Troutdale. He has been given the name Humphrey.

MCAS described him in a Facebook post Thursday evening as about a year old. He seems to be people-oriented and knows a few tricks, like spin. 

Under MCAS policy, a found animal without identification is housed for 72 hours, to see if an owner comes to claim it. 

After three days, a pet becomes eligible for adoption.

However, MCAS is still promoting Humphrey as a stray in an attempt to find his owner.  MCAS told FOX 12 that he will be available for adoption at a later date, if unclaimed. 

If anyone believes Humphrey is their pet, they should contact MCAS at (503) 988-7387.
