article imageOp-Ed: This little piggy goes to the bank

By Melissa Horrocks     Jul 11, 2012 in Odd News
Everyone has or has had a piggy bank in their life, but now piggy bank takes on a whole, new meaning as one piggy literally went to the bank. Fortunately, it did not take any money with it.
According to Yahoo News a strange visitor went to get some money out of the bank, but unfortunately the bank was closed so the visitor left the same way it got in. However, in the morning when the cleaner came in, she was surprised to find smear marks on the window. This alerted the cleaner to something odd.
The bank branch was situated in a town east of Vienna. The pig has brought a whole new meaning to the term "piggy bank". Who would have thought that a pig could push through a locked sliding glass door and enter a bank? It almost seems like something a joke could be made out of.
The Associated Press reports that it was the surveillance cameras that caught the cheeky piggy. Once the pig had taken a good look around, it decided to leave, exactly the same way as it entered the bank. News Leader reported that, a report on Wednesday said that it was early morning cleaning crew that noticed huge smear prints on the door. The cleaner alerted the management who then examined CCTV footage and found they had, had a visitation in the night. Maybe it's time to change the tune of the nursery rhyme, "This little piggy went to market" to "This little piggy went to the bank?"
