SOUTHWEST RANCHES, Fl. (CBSNews) -- Firefighters rescued of a 900-pound pig that got stuck in a pond in southwest Florida.

The owner of the enormous two-and-a-half old Yorkshire swine said he was getting ready to take her to the Florida panhandle, when Strawberry slipped into the five-foot-deep water. 

Neighbors saw the pig fall and helped keep her head above water while the owner called 911.

Members of the Pembroke Pines Fire Department and Southwest Ranches Volunteer Fire Department successfully pulled out Strawberry using a ladder and a large tarp, CBS Miami reported.
