Suit: Pig bit woman at restaurant

A Washington state woman claims in a lawsuit against a gourmet restaurant that she suffered injuries at the mouth of one of the establishment's potbellied pigs.

The woman said she was dining with her husband Jan. 11 at the Herbfarm Restaurant in Woodinville, Wash., and decided to take a restaurant-issued pan of pig food to the eatery's swine, Seattlepi.com reported Thursday.

The complaint filed in the case said it was dark inside the restaurant so the woman did not see the pig coming for the food in her hand until it had bitten her.

Out of the darkness came one of (the) pigs, the complaint states. The pig tried to take the food from (her) hand and in doing so, bit her.

The woman, whose attorney said she suffered lasting injuries as a result of the bite, is seeking to have the restaurant pay her medical expenses plus other costs and damages.
