Amusing newspaper correction

From the Reader’s Digest (English Canadian edition, December 2016):

The story said, “More than 30,000 pigs were floating down the Dawson River.”  What piggery owner Sid Everingham actually said was “30 sows and pigs,” not “30,000.” (From Morning Bulletin (Australia).)

The thing is, I can see how the reporter could have misheard the original quote.
