Thieves caught with 12 pigs in car

BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Two thieves were caught in southern Hungary with 12 pigs stuffed in their small van during a routine traffic check, Hungarian police said on Thursday.

Police stopped two men in a Renault Kangoo near the town of Szigetvar, about 220 km (137 miles) south of Budapest, as they attempted to drive off.

“The pigs weighed about 25-30 kg (55-66 lb) each — they were really squashed into the car very tightly,” a spokesman said.

Police said the pigs came from a nearby farm, where 35 pigs have gone missing in recent days.
