Scarf-wearing pig chased by cops on Pittsburgh highway

Today, the best news story of the entire day was surely this unlikely report of a "sharp-dressed pig running loose on a highway" outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Police chased the little porker, believed to be a juvenile, but "failed to catch it before it scurried off into the woods."

Police say the pig appeared to be a baby and confirmed it was wearing a scarf. Police dont know why that is or who may own the animal.

Full story at Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, WTAE Pittsburgh, and Associated Press.

        1. I somehow suspect Rick Santorum would assert that Gyros aren’t “American enough”.

          -abs is pretty sure that he’d probably also add that “Greek food will make us go bankrupt, and start giving out pensions at 25.  Then everyone will have to answer to Angela Merkel.  And this is why Gyros should be renamed, by Congressional action, and called ‘Tasty pressed Liberty-Meat!'”, but maybe I’m wrong {don’t bet on it, this IS Man-on-dog Rick we’re talking about.}

      1.  If it isn’t some legislator will introduce a bill, probably named “Piggy’s Law”, to make it so.

  1. The picture is kinda hard to see. I hope it wasn’t Rooty the mini pig who I believe lives in Wilkinsburg (parkway East not West)

  2.  So hard to choose…do i go with:
    “I’m coming Charlotte!!!….”  or  “Pigs chase pigs!”

    naw…too easy, think i’ll go with:
    “A well dressed pig gets no respect!  Next time I’m taking the subway.”

  3. Little different perspective in the South. Uniforms are standard issue for our porcine friends.  This little Pennsylvania porker seems a might underdressed.

  4. Apparently he’s heard of Pittsburgher’s fondness for “chipped ham sandwiches” (from Isaly’s Dairy, of course.)

    Run fast, little buddy.
