Anyone missing a 150kg porker?

SHE weighs in at more than 150 kilograms, and she's lost.

The Ipswich Pound is currently home to a massive sow - dubbed Peppa the Pig by staff who are desperately looking for her owner.

The massive domestic pig was found wandering the Warrego Hwy on Saturday afternoon. It took five people to load her on to the pound's ute.

Ipswich councillor Andrew Antoniolli said Peppa was a really gentle and kind animal who had slipped away from home and was now the largest guest of the Ipswich Pound.

"She is a very well-cared-for domestic animal that we are extremely keen to reunite with her family and loved ones," Cr Antoniolli said.

"Peppa is currently receiving exceptional care and a lot of love at the pound but it's time for her to go home to her family."

While she is by far the biggest animal currently at the pound, she isn't the only pig. She's currently housed next to two small pigs.

If the pig belongs to you, or you know who the owners might be, phone the council directly on 3810 6666.
