Pig threatens 2 children walking along a wooded path between schools in Maine

  • Print

OAKLAND, Maine - Police in the Maine town of Oakland are looking for a pig that threatened two children walking through the woods.

Capt. Rick Stubbert tells the Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1w4FF9U ) that the children were walking along a trail in the wooded area between the local middle school and the high school at about 1:45 p.m. Tuesday when the pig confronted them "screaming at the kids and chasing them."

The children were so frightened they flagged down a police officer. Police did not disclose the children's age.

Officers, including animal control, responded to the scene, and although they found tracks that confirmed the pig was real, they didn't find the animal.

Stubbert says he doesn't know where the pig came from or why it might have been acting aggressively.
