Henry the pig is home.

After being stolen from the Unicorn Pub early Sunday morning, the prized pig was returned to the CJAY92 radio station studio Thursday night with an apology note attached to it.

"Hey guys, just went on vacation, no need to panic," it read.

"Just a pig looking for a party. Had a wicked time."

The note also took issue with a description of the swine thief in a CBC story.

"The guy with me was jacked, not heavy set," the note read.

Surveillance footage captured the pig pilfering about 2:15 a.m. Sunday, when a man wearing shorts, a T-shirt and a baseball cap sits on Henry while apparently waiting for friends. The video shows a man and a woman who appear to be with the thief walk out the door before he picks Henry up and follows behind.

Unicorn Pub staff put out a plea for Henry's return on social media and the fibreglass swine was dropped off outside the CJAY92 studio about 9:30 p.m. and he was returned to the pub Friday morning.

CJAY92 morning host JD Lewis said whoever dropped Henry off made an immediate, hasty retreat.

Unicorn Pub staff said Henry has been a fixture in the Eighth Avenue establishment since it opened, and got his name as the space used to the King Henry the Eighth Pub.
