ANCHORAGE - A young mother gave birth at the Alaska State Fair and became a star attraction.
Miss Piggy, a 17-month old, 950-pound porker, gave birth to 11 piglets.
The young sow was drawing crowds Friday night as word spread that the births were pending. She had a due date of Sept. 1 and was three days late.
Miss Piggy apparently wanted a private room to give birth. The first-time mom went into labor at 11 p.m. Friday, an hour after the fair barn closed, and had the last of the 11 piglets at 3 a.m. Saturday.
Owner Peggy Downing and her children were on hand for the event.
Today is the last day of the fair.
