Police: Screams from Maine home was a piggy party

After hearing screams coming from a neighbor’s house, a woman in a Maine town called police.

Thinking someone was being assaulted, four state troopers rushed to the home in China, a town of about 4,300 people in southern Maine.

Imagine their surprise when officers discovered the screams weren't coming from a domestic assault, but from a piggy party, according to a report in The Morning Sentinel newspaper.

The neighbor, who raises pigs, explained to police that a male porker was simply squealing with delight after being placed in a pen with five sows in heat.
