According to records, the man allegedly killed the pig over the weekend.
Records show a complaint was received Friday morning that a black pig was running loose in the Mamie Street area.
Responding units found no sign of the pig.
On Sunday morning, a different caller reported he believed his neighbor had killed his pig.
Follow-up found the pig and a suspect -- Joseph Loicy Johnson, 79, of 210 Mamie, who allegedly shot the pig with a pellet gun because it would not stay out of his garden.
Shortly after 2 p.m. Sunday, the pig was returned to its owner for disposal.
Johnson is charged with cruelty to animals and discharging an airgun in the city limits.
