Looks like thieves today will go to any lengths to smuggle animals.
Three modern day Costa Rican hog rustlers were arrested on Sunday, March 29, 2015 for attempting to steal three pigs which they had squeezed into the boot of their rickety old Nissan Sentra.
The countries Public Security Ministry later stated. “With three people already in the car, where else were the pigs going to fit?”
The pig were driven home and reunited with their owners.
Transporting stolen animals by this method is not uncommon in Costa Rica. On March 19, police arrested two people driving a car with a mule in the trunk. In July 2014, police got into a shootout with suspects before finding a green sea turtle in the boot of their car. In 2005, a cow was riding in the backseat of a taxi.
