A problem pig has been trapped after terrorizing a Maine neighborhood. Amy Sinclair reports.

A pig gone wild is back behind bars Wednesday in the town of Oakland, Maine after nearly two months living on his own in the woods.

His owner, Jeff Taylor, says Kermit didn't exactly take to domestic life on the farm right away.

"He was only here 10 or 15 minutes before he bolted," recalled Taylor.

He said they looked for Kermit, who was just a piglet, for about a month, but eventually gave up.

Then Taylor says he picked up the newspaper.

"I read about a pig harassing people on the nature trail," he said. "We were like uh-oh. That's our pig."

By then, the Oakland Police Department had gotten involved.

"There were people who were concerned and they weren't using the trail. People who encountered him were afraid." said Chief Michael Tracy.
