Sow Close to Freedom

A 280-pound sow on her way to a Bangor abattoir Monday jumped out of a trailer in Ellsworth.
The pink pig with brown spots fled on hoof as officers pursued her to Birch Street and through several yards before she stopped on Bayview Avenue to rest after about 30 minutes of freedom.

"She was tired so she laid down," said Ellsworth police Officer Daniel Owens, who chased the swine along with Officer Chad Wilmot. "That's probably the most exercise she has had in her life." [Link]
She was finally lassoed and wrangled back into the trailer. Despite her heroic effort to escape, she and her colleagues completed their trip to Bangor.

Or at least call the Governor or President for a pardon. Why should only turkeys get that honor?
