STRANGE BUT TRUE
COPS in California say a runaway pig was unable to resist the lure of a hugely popular Frito-Lay snack.
According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, deputies were dispatched to the Highland area on Saturday after receiving a report of a large pig hoofing it in a residential neighbourhood.
The caller described the road hog as a real porker, comparing it to “the size of a mini horse”.
Responding deputies Shelly Ponce and Ashleigh Berg were reportedly familiar with the cunning ham, who’d escaped from a nearby residence.
“They located the pig but had no way to gain control of the animal,” the sheriff’s office said.
Their plan consisted of Ponce retrieving a bag of Doritos tortilla chips from her lunch sack. Once the hog sampled the goods, he was apparently eager to pig out.
Luckily for the deputies, the pig was no ein-swine and didn’t hesitate to follow Ponce down the street as Berg filmed the bizarre roadside pignic, which ended back at its owner’s home.
