Police shoot, kill damaging pot-bellied pig
FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. — A pot-bellied pig that rambled for weeks through a southwestern Illinois city is no more after being shot and killed by a police officer.
The Belleville News-Democrat quotes Fairview Heights police Lt. Steve Evans as saying the black pig estimated to weigh 50 pounds was shot Sunday morning near a church.
Police had been assisting the city's animal-control officers in trying to capture the pig they said destroyed personal property during its month or so on the loose.
