Pigs dig up WWII anti-tank weapon in Germany

A couple of hungry pigs in Germany have dug up a World War II anti-tank weapon.

Police said Friday the two pigs found the single-shot “panzerfaust” on private land southwest of Dresden. The pigs’ owner secured the animals in their stall then called police who were able to remove the weapon and destroy it.
