CINCINNATI, May 22 (UPI) -- A life-sized concrete pig taken from a Cincinnati home was found abandoned and damaged in the grass behind a cluster of businesses.

Maggie Gieseke, whose pig statue was taken Saturday from the front yard of her family's home, said someone who saw a story about the theft on Cincinnati.com came to her home Monday and said the pilfered porker had been spotted in the tall grass and poison ivy behind some businesses at Mount Lookout Square, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported Tuesday.

She said the sculpture's one remaining ear had been broken and someone scratched the letters "NF" into the pig's body.

"She looks a little rough," Gieseke said. "But she is home."
