Live 20 miles away so he don't have to smell them but all the neighbors do. Build the barns in your won back yard.

Have they interviewed any of the other pigs? Maybe they escaped? Animal Farm!

The thieves unlocked and locked the barn? Who else has a key? Change the lock.

Youngwiseguy, stay in the city so you don't have to face reality of country life. Dvaudio-they didn't unlock the barn from the outside, they used a mesh entrance designed to allow air in and then locked/unlocked once inside.

The farm folks are way too trusting and leave their farms wide open for theft.

Wow... open your horizons, people. This is how many farmers make their living and it's a big deal. Just be respectful of the situation, please.

.....apparently after the thieves left with the pigs, they stole 1000 crates of eggs...and it has been just reported that the local Fleet Farm is missing 100' s of skillets.
