FAYETTEVILLE, Arkansas (AP) - This hog can be called from miles away.

A 25-foot-tall (7.6 meter) statue of a hog was installed Sunday in Fayetteville, close to the University of Arkansas campus. The statue is of a signature razorback with its hooves in the air and its snout pointed to the sky.

Video posted by KHBS/KHOG showed a crane lifting the statue and putting it in place.

Local artist Eugene Sargent designed the sculpture.
