Coffin Talks About Pigs for BDN Article on Escaped Hog

The Bangor Daily News spoke with Donna Coffin, educator with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, about pig habits for an article on a 140-pound black guinea hog who escaped into the Aroostook woods on its way to a slaughterhouse. Coffin said pigs are omnivores and if they can find a dry shelter with access to water, they could survive the winter in the wild. She also said the pig could be more cautious of people the longer it is on its own, but could be enticed with bait.
