Pigs aren’t usually something seen on golf courses around the world, but that’s exactly what happened on a golf course in Yorkshire, England.

Not only did two big pigs make their way onto the Lightcliffe Golf Course, but they also disrupted play and injured some golfers.

No one knows where they came from, but the two pigs first appeared on Sunday. One of the golfers tried to shoo them away and sustained a cut on his leg. He had to go to the local hospital’s emergency room for a shot. Soon after, the two pigs left.

On Tuesday, the two pigs returned. Employees at the golf club phoned the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) and the local police, reports the BBC. The police said coming to collect the pigs wasn’t their jurisdiction and the RSPCA would come and help when they could but they “were very overstretched.”

The employees managed to lure them to the far corner of the course and because the pigs are dangerous, they were forced to close the course.

On Tuesday night they ended up on the side of the road and were put in transporters before being taken away.

No further sightings of the two pigs have been reported.
