Groundswell building to save Vt. police pig decal

Posted: Updated:

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

There's now a movement under way to keep the pig.

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

The creator of the "save the pigs" Facebook page, Cid Sinclair of Barre, wants the state to keep the pigs on the cruisers. He says times have been tough and the pigs are an opportunity for Vermonters "to laugh together as one." He has more than 500 supporters.

Meanwhile, there was more wrong with the image than just the pig. Vermont law says the cow in the image needs to be red, not red and white.
