A HILARIOUS photo shows the moment a police officer pokes fun at himself by posing next to a sign that says “do not feed the pigs”.
The funny image shows “PC Allen” of Hampshire Police crouching down in a countryside farm pouting in disappointment at the pig sign.
The caption along with the photo says: “PC Allen was taking things too personally while out on patrol today. #RuralCops #SeemsABitHarsh.”
The picture was uploaded to Test Valley Rural Police’s Twitter account and has received an overwhelming response on social media.
Believed to have been taken in the Test Valley area of Hampshire, the photo shows the officer kneeling down, pointing up at the sign which is placed on the back of a shed.
The red sign with white writing says: “Warning. Do not feed the pigs or attempt to handle them.”
