The Boise Airport created quite a buzz on Friday when they introduced their latest employee with the city. A pig named Tater sporting red nail polish, matching red collar, a big yellow bow airport credentials and an airport captains hat.

The post states that pigs can smell 2000 times better than humans. At least that part of the post is true. According to doggysourus, "A pig can smell for up to 7 miles in distance. That’s sense of smell around 2,000 times better than a human!"

Unfortunately everything else in the post was an April fools joke. The post gathered a lot of comments from locals and visitors that are pretty entertaining. You can definitely tell that some did not seem to catch on right away that it was a joke. Here are some of the best comments and replies:

Danielle W.  I dont want this to be an April Fools’s! I wanna meet Tater
Reply from Hank E. We want to meet her as well!

Amanda D. My husband just fell for it. He was like what no way. Are people really trying to smuggle potatoes??
