China, Maine — The screams of delight from a male pig placed with five  receptive sows led to an erroneous report 
of an assault last week.

A Hanson Road woman called police Jan. 27 after hearing what she believed 
to be a fight coming from a home separated by woods just a short distance away. 
The caller feared she had overheard domestic violence at the home.

“The caller reported she heard screaming,” according to an activity log provided 
by Maine State Police.

Trooper Thomas Bureau, accompanied by three other troopers, went to the house. 
Bureau spoke to the neighbor, who raises pigs.

“The homeowner stated her male pig was screaming because he was in a pen with five 
female pigs in heat,” according to the Bureau report. 

Which Bureau? Why, Maine's state police's Bureau.

Police determined there was no assault and no disturbance, “other than the screaming male pig.”
