Since Liberty had to have its hooves pried in order to be stolen, the damage was more significant. Schramm said she thinks it will be repairable.
While many of the businesses participating in the Pigtacular will auction off their pigs for charity at the Pigtacular's last event, Hogtoberfest, Schramm said the Pine Bush Elementary told her they had hoped to hold onto Liberty.
"They're absolutely thrilled," said Schramm, of the pig's return. Schramm said the school had been looking at keeping the pig as an "unofficial mascot."
"It's a shame when people do the wrong thing," said Schramm, "but it's spectacular when people chip in and do the right thing."
Following the theft last week, Schramm warned that pig sponsors throughout the community need to take caution that their pigs are properly secured and if not to make sure they are taken in at night.
"We certainly want the community to enjoy them," said Schramm, "but we don't want to risk losing them.""
