Roger Waters' Inflatable Coachella Pig Is Recovered

Former Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters, has been informed that the 'flying' inflatable pig, used at his show at Coachella music festival, but which floated away during Sunday's (April 27) gig, has been found, in pieces, on a California roadside today (April 30).

Organisers of the Coachella music festival had offered a reward of $10,000 and lifetime passes to the annual music bash if anybody found the missing inflatable.

The pig bore the image of a ticked ballot box for US presidential hopeful Barack Obama and the slogans "fear builds walls" and "don't be led to the slaughter" and was flown, tethered with ropes to the ground, during Waters' version of the Pink Floyd track "Pigs".

Two families have found the tattered remains of the popped pig, according to BBC News, and have decided to split the reward money and four lifetime passes to the festival.
