Well if this doesn’t go on the list of unusual calls, we aren't quite sure what would.


A pig in California had escaped from its pen and San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office was tasked with the job of bringing the animal back home.


The swine was found trotting around the neighbourhood when one of the deputies had an idea.

Using the Doritos from her lunch bag, Deputy Ponce and Deputy Berg made a trail for the pet pig to follow.


From the video, the 'mini horse' sized pig clearly had a love for the Poppin' Jalapeño flavoured Doritos. 


This isn't the first time the pig has made a break for it as the police knew where he lived.


Taking to their Instagram, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office explained that he was returned to his pen and deputies secured the gate.



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


It seems like the Doritos went down a treat with the pig and thanks to the quick thinking of the police, it was a successful rescue.
