Elusive pot-bellied pig is finally captured

A Vietnamese pot-bellied pig that’s been on the lam in Waterville, Maine, for a month has finally been captured. Police responded to a call from someone who had been feeding French fries to the pig.

Officers briefly stunned the animal with a Taser gun, then captured it with a snare pole and returned it safely to the farmer who owns it.
