Reportedly, the Oink Cadre were not available for comment:

Police responding to reports of screaming coming from a home in Maine didn't find a victim of domestic violence as they feared. Instead, they found an amorous pig.

State police say a woman called last week after hearing what she believed to be a fight coming from a neighbor's home in the town of China. The caller said she heard screaming and thought there was a domestic assault.

The Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1jafexV ) reports that four state troopers responded and talked to the neighbor.

The neighbor explained that she raises pigs and the screaming was coming from an overjoyed male pig that had been placed in a pen with five sows in heat.

Police say there was no assault and no disturbance "other than the screaming male pig."

"Overjoyed?" Is this possible?

A pig’s orgasm lasts for 30 minutes, the longest orgasms among all mammals.
Pig’s penises are shaped like a corkscrew, and can rotate 360 degrees.

Coincidence? I think not.

A pig's squeal can range from 110 to 115 decibels. Compare that to the take-off sound of a jet engine - about 112 decibels.

No wonder they called the cops.

Have you ever heard the saying, "Don’t buy a pig in a poke?" In 17th century England, it was a common trick to try to give away a cat to an unsuspecting shopper buying a suckling (young) pig. When he opened the poke (sack), he "let the cat out of the bag," and found he had been cheated.

The cat was overjoyed, I'll bet.

"Please tell me there's video."

That would have been my post.

Wethinks that "Amorous Pig" would be a really awesome name for a rock band.

Just sayin'.

I second that emotion.

Another age.
