German pigs find World War II anti-tank weapon

BERLIN, Germany Police said Friday the two pigs found the single-shot "panzerfaust" on private land southwest of Dresden.

The pigs' owner secured the animals in their stall then called police who were able to remove the weapon and destroy it.

The inexpensive and easy-to-operate panzerfaust was used extensively during the defense of Germany and through the rest of the war. Such finds are still relatively common, even 65 years after the end of the war.
