KENSINGTON, Madison St., 11000 block, April 29. A youth called an emergency communications center to report that his father was being attacked by a "pig dog." Police and animal services dispatched to the residence found that the "pig dog" was an opossum that had gotten into the home's basement. Because the animal was uninjured and had not bitten the man, it was captured and released outdoors, where it scurried away.
