School Mascot Pig Named Kevin Bacon on the Loosethe daily dish
Kevin Bacon is missing. Not the famous actor, but the pig named after him. Seniors from Kingsway Regional High School in South New Jersey bought Kevin Bacon as a mascot, but the little porker escaped a little over a month ago, according to WABC-TV in New York.
Students are still searching for Kevin Bacon, but they'll need to find him this week to get him back in time for homecoming.
Kevin Bacon has been missing for much longer than he was ever in the senior class's possession. A couple of students bought him on Craigslist last month for $50, intending for him to be their class mascot for the year. They very day they brought Kevin Bacon home, he escaped.
For now, Kevin Bacon seems to be safe, as he has been spotted consistently all over town in the last four weeks, although nobody has yet been able to catch him.
