Pink Floyd pig found ‘in tatters’

Roger Waters' flying prop comes back to earth

The giant inflatable pig which floated away during a Roger Waters concert at the weekend has been recovered in tatters in California.

The pig was found by two families on their driveways in La Quinta.

They will split the $10,000 (£5,090) reward offered by the Coachella music festival, from where the pig went missing.

Coachella spokeswoman Marcee Rondan explained: “It wasn’t really supposed to happen that way.”

The pig was tethered to the ground with ropes and floated away as Waters was playing the Pink Floyd song ‘Pigs On The Wing’.

Pink Floyd had used inflatable pigs during their concerts in the past, and the lost animal was the same prototype as all the others, according to Rondan.

The two families who found what was left of the inflatable have also decided to share four life tickets to the Coachella Festival that were offered as part of the reward, reports BBC News.
