Police aren't sure what species of animal is on the loose in Val-des-Monts, but they'd sure like to know how it got there.

MRC Des Collines spokesman Martin Fournel said that an "unusual animal" -- either a wild boar or a Thai pig -- was spotted and photographed sniffing around a driveway on Lac Clair Rd. near Val-des-Monts, about 40 km north of Ottawa.

Fournel said the woman who lives at the home was shocked to see the animal, and quietly waited in her car for police to arrive.
