This is the twenty-second puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Agnes. In order to solve this puzzle, you must use three ropes to separate the pigs into their own partitions.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Since you have seven pigs to separate and only three ropes, it's pretty much a given that the ropes will have to overlap in places.

    Go ahead and hitch the ropes up a couple of times. You might just find the answer.

Hint Two
    Look at how the seven pigs are arranged. Do you see the one pig in the middle? In order to separate him from the other pigs, you're going to have to surround him with rope on all sides.

    Your three ropes need to be arranged in such a way that they surround and isolate the middle pig.

Hint Three
    Arrange your three ropes so that the little pig in the middle is surrounded completely.

    Next, look at how your ropes are laid out. You need to keep the middle pig surrounded, but you also need to separate the other pigs. There aren't many configurations that will satisfy those conditions, so you should have an answer before you know it.
