LINTHICUM, Md. - Anne Arundel County Animal Control officials say a second domestic pot belly pig seen living for weeks around an office park near the Baltimore-Washington Parkway in Linthicum has been safely captured.

The second pig, a male, was captured Wednesday on Hammonds Ferry Road. Officers used tranquilizers to capture it.

The first pig, a female, was captured on Sept. 22. They have been named Miss Piggy and Kermit. They will be spayed and neutered, then put up for adoption through the Pig Placement Network if no one claims them.
