WASHINGTON — Officials in Loudoun County, Virginia want to know: are these your pigs?

Loudoun County Animal Services is trying to determine if the two pigs belong to anyone. They have been spotted in the area of Gospond Lane and Hunts End Place, but have apparently evaded capture.

The pigs are described as potbellied mix type boars with tusks, and are piebald in color (black and white). Officials say one of the pigs has a “U”-shaped notch in its left ear.

Authorities are warning residents to be careful around animals they are not familiar with, and to contact Animal Services at 703-777-0406 with any information about these two pigs.
