MEAD, Colo. — Video shows Colo. firefighter rescuing a massive pig that fell down a hole.

The pig is believed to weight around 700 to 1,300 pounds and was stuck in a six-foot deep hole at a farm, according to 9News.

The normally mild-mannered pig was squealing extremely loud as firefighters hoisted him from the hole.

"It was a lot louder than I ever thought a pig could be," Greg Munns of Mountian View Fire & Rescue said.

The pig was not injured.
