Police reports said officers responding to a call about an abandoned car Monday found the Nissan Cube with air bags deployed, two flat tires and heavy damage to the front end. And there was a 250-pound pot-belly pig named Penelope in the back seat.

The (Youngstown) Vindicator (http://bit.ly/VzyyDA ) reports that officers had the car towed with the pig inside.

The owner, who lives in Pennsylvania, was contacted and said she was visiting a friend in Youngstown. She said she did notice the vehicle — and the pig — missing but thought the "kids took it."

Police contacted animal welfare workers, and they continue to look for the thief.

The culprit is found?
Alleged to be thief, road hog,
and back-seat driver?

Someones wingman was not happy. I mean who out there that gets stuck with the porker doesn't feel the urge to wreck the car and ditch her in the back seat?

Did the police grill her?
His friends warned him she was a real pig before he picked her up.
