KING 5 television’s “Evening Magazine” producer Anne Erickson and videographer Tom Bishop paid a visit to Tacoma Weekly to profile the City of Destiny’s most famous swine for a segment about the little pig’s crusade against potholes.

Perceval, the pig named in honor of the first knight of King Arthur’s fabled Round Table to quest for the Holy Grail, powdered his snout and headed out on yet another search for the “perfect pothole.”

The latest media attention comes on the heels of Perceval sightings in Seattle Weekly, KOMO News, The News Tribune,, Business Week and asphalt patch producer U.S. Cold Patch, as well as a flood of community blogs and shout outs on social media.

He is one tired swine.
