Hundreds ask Vt. to keep prank pig on police decal

Published:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- Remember the pig hidden within the decal on the doors of some Vermont State Police cruisers?

There's now a movement under way to keep it there.

The white pig hidden within the red cows was first noticed last week, years after it was added by a prison inmate who designed the 16-inch decals.

Cid Sinclair, of Barre, has created a "Save the Pigs" Facebook page seeking to keep the pigs on the cruisers. He says times are tough and the pigs are an opportunity for Vermonters "to laugh together as one." The page has more than 500 supporters.

Meanwhile, more is wrong with the image than just the pig, a derogatory term for police. Vermont law says the cow in the image needs to be red, not red and white.
