Pot-bellied pig runs amok
MIDLAND, Pa. (AP) - October 9, 2012 (WPVI) -- A pot-bellied pig that someone likely abandoned as a pet has been running amok in one western Pennsylvania neighborhood.
Folks in Midland Heights, a neighborhood in Beaver County about 30 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, say they've had no luck catching the pig, which is rooting around in yards and frightening children.
Resident Kristi Bilotto tells a local television station that she contacted the Pennsylvania Game Commission, but they told her they don't handle wild animals and referred her to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. Those folks told her to contact the local animal shelter or humane society.
Bilotto says the pig has so far outsmarted residents who have tried to trap it or put it in a cage.
She says she thinks "it's a cute little pig, but it belongs on a farm ... not in the Heights!"
