(Newser) – Police responding to reports of screams 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. But the neighbor explained to state troopers 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.
