Portland rioters set a pig wearing a police hat on fire Thursday night outside the federal courthouse as the city continues to see more than 60 consecutive days of protests.

Journalist Andy Ngo also noted that police had rescued a pig in early June after it was found wrapped in blanket near downtown Portland.

Federal agents also tweeted about items confiscated earlier this week.

Federal agents are in the city to protect federal property, according to U.S. Attorney Billy Williams, the chief federal law enforcement officials in Oregon since 2015.

Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf tweeted that he was glad the state had corrected "their months long error" in originally not cooperating with federal agents.
