California deputies use Doritos to lure wayward pig back home

San Bernardino County Sheriff's Office

Here piggy, piggy, piggy....

Luckily for the deputies, the pig was no ein-swine and didn't hesitate to follow Ponce down the street as Berg filmed the freaky roadside pignic, which ended back at its owner's home.

Perhaps the most amusing part of their call was how they managed to lure "Smalls" back home by letting the chips fall where they may, so to speak.

Well if this doesn't go on the list of unusual calls.

A couple of San Bernardino County Sheriff's Deputies came up with a plan when confronted with a giant pig roaming around a Highland neighborhood on Saturday.


"Deputy Ponce and Deputy Berg found him and due to previous calls, knew where he lived", sheriff's officials wrote. "They made a trail, and he followed".

The trouble-making pig even enjoyed a head rub by one of the deputies.

"We were able to put him back in and secure the gate", Deputy Ponce said. "It was fun!" police said.

This big pig - or his owner, at least - has apparently crossed paths with the law.
