When there is a need for some emotional support, our animals are always there for us, making things seem a little bit lighter, wrapping us in unconditional love and making things better by just being. Perhaps the most common animals for such a responsibility are dogs or cats, but essentially, it can be anything that the person feels they resonate with. Pigs, on the other hand, are mostly not on the top of the list for support animals and are often labelled as livestock, although in recent years, pigs of different sizes are finding a place in people’s houses as pets and get well-deserved treatment like any other domestic animals.

Sometimes people find it hard to wrap their heads around different things that happen around them. That’s what happened to one local “Karen” in a video that went viral. It shows a woman harassing two other women as they walk with their pig on a leash and perhaps one of the hardest things for her to grasp was the fact that the pig was an emotional support animal.

This lady couldn’t believe her eyes that two women were strolling in the park walking a pig

This woman who, later in the video, not without a reason, gains the name “Karen,” approached two others as they were walking a pig on a leash through “her neighborhood” and firstly wanted to find out why someone had a pig in the middle of a park. One of the two women walking the pig called Chorizo (actual name) filmed “Karen” yelling and threatening to call the local homeowners association—which, as pointed out by the pig owners, are already aware of their animal. “Karen” claimed that she knows everything about the area and had never seen the women or the huge pig.

Frustrated Karen, exclaiming “This is a community that has bylaws, and if you have a dog, you put it on a leash,” seemed to completely ignore the fact that the pig was actually on a leash, then moved on to screeching “It’s huge.” The pig, on the other hand, appeared to be really peaceful, nibbling away on the grass and ignoring the angry “Karen.” As Karen continued to follow the ladies and the pig, it decided to bake a healthy-sized loaf, which totally shocked the screaming lady: “Look at that, right on our lawn!” which appeared rather unnecessary as the action took place in a public park.

The owners pointed out the obvious, that their emotional support pig in fact is on a leash

The pig owners proceeded to collect the manure from the grass with the empty bags they brought, as Karen was in awe of how much of it there was. One of the pig owners pointed out that dogs defecate all the time, as well as other animals. As the annoyed lady carried on yelling, the two women advised her to get in touch with a lawyer if she has so much trouble with emotional support animals, but she insists she ought to call the HOA regardless of the fact that they have already been informed about the pig.

What really fascinated and left Karen speechless was that when the pig had to do the doo, the owner collected it with a bag

The two women asked the intimidating lady to leave them alone to get on with their pleasant walk, but Karen was persistent

The video was posted on Reddit’s community r/PublicFreakout, a subreddit dedicated to people freaking out, melting down, losing their cool, or being weird in public. The community has 3.2M members and is full of similar examples of random people losing it and taking it out on others. The comments from the users went from pointing out that Karen was finding it hard figuring out what she was even angry about, to people admiring the pig and supporting the pig and its owners.

Eventually the owners told Karen that if she would not comply and leave them to their peaceful walk alone, they would call the police. Karen seemed to ignore that and carried on not understanding that any animal can serve as a support animal and continued to follow the strolling trio till she walked away, declaring that she will be “following up on this.”

And as any self-respecting neighborhood Karen would, she highlighted the fact that nothing passes by her eyes in this area

And of course, Karen couldn’t let go of the idea that she must contact the local HOA and let them know about the pig—about which they knew already, as the owners informed them

Still, Karen was on about the fact that she hasn’t come across a pig as an emotional support animal, and she just seemed bewildered by that

The ladies with their pet pig didn’t take long to figure out what the annoying woman’s name was

Karen’s persistence and annoyance drove the two women to the point of them actually having to say that they would call the police if she didn’t leave them alone

As there was no manager to speak to, Karen decided to leave and promised to definitely give a closer investigation into what had just happened

And the ladies with the pig couldn’t be more relieved to get rid of the neighborhood Karen

The video of the two women with their pet pig getting harassed by a Karen is pretty hilarious
