Female Enters Pig Pen After Hours at Bellmore Street Festival

Police said that a seemingly intoxicated female climbed into the racing track of Robinson's Racing Pigs.

Nassau Police said that an apparently intoxicated female climbed into the racing track with pigs early Sunday morning after day one of the Bellmore Street Festival.

Cops said they received a call just after midnight about pigs wandering unattended in their racing pen in the carnival portion of the festival. Officers responded to the scene and found a female, who police said appeared inebriated, had climbed into the track with the animals.

Cops said that they helped her get out of the pen, and the owner of Robinson's Racing Pigs, which is stationed near the intersection of Bedford Avenue and Sunrise Highway in the Long Island Rail Road parking lot, was woken up to tend to his animals.

Police added that it's not known how the pigs were released from the trailer they were being kept in, but a latch on the door was opened.

"We were just worried about someone stealing the pigs," police added. "Thankfully, we were able to get to them before that happened."

It was a perfect plan, imperfectly executed.
