Police shoot renegade pig

FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. (AP) — 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.

 Fairview Heights police Lt. Steve Evans said 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.

When the pig was located Sunday, police contacted the county’s animal control to tranquilize it but was told the agency couldn’t do that because they didn’t have the right chemicals for that type of animal. Police then shot the pig.
