Pig That Threatened Children Seen Again in Maine

Jul 15, 2014

OAKLAND, Maine (AP) _ Police in the Maine town of Oakland say a pig that threatened two children walking through the woods has scared another passer-by.
    They've now closed the walking trail where the pig's been seen. The Morning Sentinel reports that following last week's scare, a woman on Monday took refuge on the side rail of a wooden bridge after seeing the 80-pound black-and-white pig. She wasn't attacked.
    Police searched for the pig, but found only tracks. They are working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the school district and the animal control officer to capture the pig.
    The town wants to reunite the pig with its owner, who did not intend for the animal to escape and does not face any charges.
