Coachella pig finishes strange flight

Indio, the pig has landed.

Roger Waters' two-story inflatable prop pig that floated off into the night sky between his festival-closing sets Sunday at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival plopped down Tuesday over two properties in nearby La Quinta, festival officials said Wednesday.

Festival spokeswoman Marcee Rondan said Coachella officials had not confirmed the names of the lighter-than-air pig wranglers, but the Desert Sun newspaper in Palm Springs identified them as Susan and Steve Solts and Judy and Patrick Rimmer. The paper also quoted them as saying they will donate the $10,000 reward money to children's music programs in their area.
