SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

One Upstate family said Irma brought them an unexpected visitor.

Rebecca Rathburn said her family woke up to find a large pig in their yard on Tuesday morning. They live along Brown Road.

Heavy winds and rain battered the Upstate Monday night into Tuesday as the remnants from Hurricane Irma pushed through the area.

The Rathburns offered the animal a breakfast of corn flakes and cheerios.

Rathburn said they were later able to make contact with the pig's owner, who came and collected the animal, after some coaxing.
