How These Two San Bernadino Deputies Lured An Escaped Pig Home With Doritos
Most police officers aren’t used to getting called out to deal with escaped livestock. But in San Bernadino, that’s exactly what Deputy Ponce and Deputy Berg found themselves doing in response to a call the Highland Station received about a pig “the size of a mini horse”.
The pig was loose and running around the neighborhood, and the deputies responding to the call knew exactly where the animal had escaped from due to previous visits to the house. But how to get the pig to follow them?

Well if this doesn’t go on the list of unusual calls… 🐖 Highland Station received a call reference a pig “the size of a mini horse” 🐷🐴 running around the neighborhood. Deputy Ponce and Deputy Berg found him and due to previous calls, knew where he lived. They lured him back home with @Doritos one of our deputies had in her lunch bag 😋. They made a trail and he followed. “We were able to put him back in and secure the gate. It was fun!” said Deputy Ponce. Crime fighting to safely securing a mini horse sized pig, we do it all 🤷♀️🤷♂️
Doritos, of course. They also documented the entire thing for Instagram.
One of the deputies happened to have a bag of Doritos in the squad car and decided to see if the pig would take the bait. It seems pigs, or at least this pig, loves Doritos. The deputies created a trail of Dorito crumbs for the pig to follow, and lead it all the way back to its open gate.

The Happy Ending
A quick and clever idea by the San Bernadino deputies made this little piggy walk all the way home.“We were able to put him back in and secure the gate. It was fun!” said Deputy Ponce.
According to the Instagram post on the San Bernadino County Sherriff account, it proudly states: “Crime fighting to safely securing a mini horse sized pig, we do it all.”
As you can see by the pictures the deputies collected, the encounter was friendly, and the pig wasn’t harmed during its adventure around the neighborhood. Next to humans, pigs have one of the most developed brains in the animal kingdom, so no doubt this escape artist learned how to unlock the gate to freedom. Hopefully, the owner will fix the problem so the deputies won’t have to respond to anymore call out about a pig “the size of a mini horse“.
