I kill me...




Alright, it's not actually very funny. Enjoy!



GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A pig withstood taser shots from police officers and eluded authorities for more than an hour after wandering onto Green Bay's major highway.


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.


ON DEADLINE: 'The pig humiliated me'


The animal reportedly went into traffic several times, creating a hazard, he said.


Officers located the pig about 7 p.m. and made two attempts to subdue it with a stun gun, he said, but it fled both times after pulling out the Taser probes.


A passerby who described himself as a former pig farmer tried to wrestle the animal, but the animal pulled away from him as well, LePine said.


Three tranquilizer darts were finally used to bring the pig under control, and it was placed in a blanket and lifted into an animal control van, LePine said.


The animal was taken to the Bay Area Humane Shelter that evening. Police said a local attorney planned to claim the pig Thursday. The name of the pig's owner was not disclosed.
