 That 200-plus pound pot-bellied pig who was found wandering the streets of Prince William County is now safe and sound at a new home.

Wilbur the pig was located last week wandering in Lake Jackson, Va. His owner turned him over to an animal shelter after the five-year-old boar repeatedly escaped from his enclosure.

After seeing him on News4 newscast a viewer decided she and her husband had to make him a part of their family.

They tell us that he is now very happy and living on a 10-acre farm in Catlett, Va. Wilbur also has a new name: Norm.

Norm's new owner said he's fitting in nicely, and their next step is to find him a companion. 

Check out a video sent in from his new owner:
