GREEN BAY, Wis. - A pig on the lam from a trip to the butcher withstood Taser shots from police officers and eluded authorities for more than an hour after wandering onto Green Bay's major highway Wednesday night.
The 150-pound pig was spotted by a passing driver on U.S. 41 at 6 p.m. Wednesday night, Green Bay Police Lt. Todd LePine said. The animal reportedly went into traffic several times, creating a hazard, he said.
Probably nothing as bad as actually slaughtering the animal does to it, Lady.The pigs not going to slaughter anytime soon, Robinson told the Press Gazette. It was shot with tranquilizers, and what does that do to a pig?"
