Three Little Pigs


These three little pigs sit in State College close to an alley. One little pig got stolen a few years ago, and whoever it was decided to bring it back. The people were really upset about it.

They are so cute! I have read that pigs are more intelligent than dogs. In my country that statue would not stay where it is as muslims refuse all that refer to pigs. Teachers don't have the right to mention the story of the three little pigs at school.

I like the story very much. Is the pig the team mascot? I reckon that I'd like chanting "GO THE PIGS!

Wonderful story. The statue is so cute. Reminds me of a local BBQ Restaurant that has a pig statue out front. Every time we go there my grandson has to climb on the pig and act like he is riding it.

Kris, No, pigs are not the mascot. They have the Nittany Lion for that. They put up the statue because pigs were roaming free on the streets back in the 1800-to 1900's.
