Pig that menaced children seen again in MaineJuly 15, 2014 @ 9:44 am
OAKLAND, Maine (AP) -- Police in the Maine town of Oakland say a pig that menaced two children walking through the woods has scared another passer-by.
They've now closed the walking trail near two schools where the pig has been seen. Police said the pig confronted the children walking along the trail last week and was "screaming at the kids and chasing them."
The Morning Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/1p2INAI ) that following that scare, a woman took refuge on the side rail of a wooden bridge on Monday 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 animal control officers to capture the pig.
The town wants to reunite the pig with its owner, who doesn't face charges.
