BBQ Explosion and Runaway Pig on Same Street Keep Barrie Cops Busy
The Sudbury Star ^

Posted on 06/02/2014 4:39:27 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Isabelle the hog remains “under suspicion” after cops caught her running down a Barrie street while they were responding to a barbecue explosion nearby, police joked in a press release.

Police were called about the explosion at 7:30 a.m. Sunday. The blast caused minor damage to the house.

At the same, police received a second call about a large hog running down the same street.

Officers were able to corral the pig and return it to its grateful owner. Bylaw officials plan to follow up this week.

“It appears the two incidents are coincidental, however “Isabelle” the hog remains under suspicion!” police wrote.

Are they sure the pig didn’t run away from the BBQ after setting the charges?

The Bacon Conspiracy arises!
Obviously the bacon on the hoof was involved in the explosion!

She did it no doubt. The question is, do the pigs have the chops to make her squeal?

It’s a ripe headline for speculation in Hog futures.... one hog did have hope for a future.

A fate better than that of Seaman Hornsby.

I had pretty much the same thing happen to me at my eldest son’s November birthday party back in ‘85. One of the 200+ pound pigs we had raised all summer escaped as we were loading her into the pickup box to take to the local abattoir. After several hours of fruitless chase, we decided to let her hunger help find her own way back to our place and proceded with the planned evening bonfire and party... I suppose some neighbour had seen the pig and phoned the police about the menace to traffic because as darkness fell, a squad care rolled into our driveway and SSgt Bull(yes) asked, “Are you missing a pig?” The RCMP officer helped me lure the pig out of the blackberry thicket across the highway and put her in the truck for her last ride.

Meanwhile, the boy had got the bonfire going real good... fortunately, everything worked out fine!

We still have laughs over that one!

Burning the chickenhouse down, not so much...;^)

The pig was probably using his Geico phone app while driving...

Bacon, Bratwurst and Beer! All taste great together. Then there is the one about the disappearing ham that kept reappearing even after having been eaten upon by a family. To celebrate the hog’s capture ... am going to have a BBQ sandwich.
