Coachella Pig Found :)
Missing concert pig found in desert
A giant inflatable pig that disappeared from a US pop concert, floating into the night skies and the headlines, has been found in pieces in the desert.
The helium-filled balloon, released during former Pink Floyd member Roger Waters’ act on Sunday at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, was discovered a few miles away.
Concert organisers had offered a £5,000 reward for its return which will be split between two householders who found piles of pink plastic in their gardens without realising what it was.
As tall as a two-storey house and as wide as two buses, the pig escaped and floated away as Waters played a version of Pink Floyd’s Pigs from the 1977 album Animals.
“It wasn’t really supposed to happen that way. I don’t have the details,” festival spokeswoman Marcee Rondan said.
The pig displayed the words “Don’t be led to the slaughter” and a cartoon of Uncle Sam holding two bloody cleavers.
The other side read “Fear builds walls” and the underside read “Obama” with a ticked ballot box for Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama.
