Roger Waters' Lost Pig Found
Roger Waters's lost pig has been returned...sort of. During the Pink Floyd guitarist's performance on day three of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, this past weekend, the giant inflatable pig broke free from its tethers and sailed up, up and away, and wasn't seen again until yesterday, when two couples reported finding shredded remains of the pig in their yards.
La Quinta, California, resident Steve Stolz found pieces of the inflatable boar in his driveway early Monday morning. "We didn't even know what it was then, but that's all I hear about now," he said.
Coachella organizers had offered a $10,000 reward (as well as four Coachella festival tickets for life) for the missing pig, which the Stoltzes and another nearby couple will split.
The pig--a longtime Floyd stage prop that also appeared on the cover of the band's Animals album--had political slogans written on it and the word "Obama" next to a ticket ballot box, showing support for presidential hopeful Barack Obama.
