CINCINNATI (AP) - A life-size swine statue is back at home after disappearing in the city once dubbed "Porkopolis."
The Cincinnati Enquirer ( http://cin.ci/Ljel3f) reports that Maggie Gieseke and her family have kept the heavy, 2-foot-tall statue for a decade in their front yard in the city's Hyde Park neighborhood. Sometimes they dress it up, giving it a white beard and red hat for Christmas, a bow for Valentine's Day, or bunny ears at Easter.
It was wearing only eyeglasses when it disappeared Saturday. The family spread the word of the "pig-napping," and someone let them know the pig was in tall grass behind some businesses in the nearby Mount Lookout area.
Dirty, banged up, with an ear broken off and the initials "NF" scratched on it, the pig was back home Tuesday.
