Scarf-wearing piglet cuts a dash
A scarf-wearing pig has become a minor celebrity in the US after it was spotted walking across a busy Pennsylvania highway.
The smartly-dressed porker safely navigated rush-hour traffic on the Parkway West at Pittsburgh before disappearing into woods.
A number of passing motorists called police to report that the piglet was trying to cross the motorway and some pulled over to take pictures.
But by the time police arrived, the pig had already successfully crossed the highway without injury, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
State troopers said they were able to spot the pig, but failed to catch it before it scurried off into the woods.
Police say they don't know who owns the pig or why it was wearing a scarf. However, it now has its own Twitter account at www.twitter.com/sharpdressedpig.
