A pig weighing nearly 300 pounds was discovered in the back of a wrecked car in Youngstown, Ohio. The car, a Nissan Cube, was totaled, but Penelope the pig was unscathed.
If pigs could talk, Penelope would tell quite a story. The car, which belongs to Wendy Thrasher, Penelope's owner, was apparently stolen while Thrasher was visiting a friend in Youngstown. When police discovered the car on Monday afternoon, the front end was badly damaged, the two front tires were flat and the air bags had been deployed. Oh, and there was a huge pig hanging out in the back.
Chuck Sayer, a representative from the Mahoning County Humane Society, said, "This isn't something we see every day. Usually dogs, cats, domestic animals, usually not a potbellied pig that weighs 300 pounds."
