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."
Full story at Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, WTAE Pittsburgh, and Associated Press.
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.
I'm running from the police. The irony is not lost on me.— Sharp-dressed pig (@Sharpdressedpig) May 30, 2012
Just hoofin' it down the highway. Like you wouldn't want to get the hell out of Pittsburgh.— Sharp-dressed pig (@Sharpdressedpig) May 30, 2012
