AUSTIN, Texas, April 3 (UPI) -- Authorities in Texas said a dead body reported by a jogger near a trail turned out to be a deceased pig.

A spokeswoman for the Austin Fire Department said the jogger called 911 around 9:45 a.m. Tuesday and reported seeing a naked dead body by a trail near Perez Elementary School, the Austin (Texas) American-Statesman reported Wednesday.

Police, firefighters and paramedics responded to the scene and soon discovered the body was that of a pig, not a human. The scene was cleared about 10:30 a.m., the spokeswoman said.

The spokeswoman and police did not have immediate information on how the pig came to be dead at the side of the trail.
