    A pair of porkers like these were wandering the woods along the Baltimore-Washington Parkway in Anne Arundel County, Md.

    Authorities netted one pot-bellied pig Thursday, but another remains in the bush somewhere near Linthicum.

    Anne Arundel County authorities have been tracking the bovine pair, which took up residence at an office park near the Baltimore-Washington Parkway.

    Animal Control Administrator Robin Small says the pig - a 26-pound female - was captured with a net on Thursday evening, the Baltimore Sun reported. Small says officials will continue their efforts to capture the second pig, which is thought to be a male of similar size.

    Small says the captured female will spend five days in the shelter to allow the owner time to reclaim her, but officials are accepting applications for ownership through the Pig Placement Network, an Internet community that finds new homes for pigs.
