CHINA, Maine – Police responding to reports of screaming coming from a home in the town of China didn't find a victim of domestic violence as they feared, but they did find one amorous pig.
State police say a woman called last week after hearing what she believed to be a fight coming from a neighbor's home. The caller said she heard screaming and thought she was hearing a domestic assault.
The Morning Sentinel reports that four state troopers responded and talked to the neighbor.
The neighbor explained that she raises pigs and the screaming was coming from an overjoyed male pig that had been placed in a pen with five sows in heat.
Police said there was no assault and no disturbance "other than the screaming male pig."
