ESCANABA, MI (AP) -

Nearly 20 hogs that were destined for slaughter had a few hours of freedom at the Upper Peninsula State Fair.

The Daily Press in Escanaba says someone released the hogs from their pens Saturday night or early Sunday. Some had minor injuries.

Escanaba police are investigating. Swine superintendent Stephanie Bruno says the vandal "had no business messing around with hogs." She says all were transported to a slaughterhouse Sunday as planned.
