A family in California was devastated after their 400-lb. pet pig Princess got slaughtered by their neighbor after it went missing. Princess got out from her pen and wandered away from owner Carrie Hogan’s mother’s house in Arcata last month, and they had no idea that it would be the last time they would see her alive.
Princess made her way around the area and was eventually spotted in a neighbor’s yard. An Arcata Police Department officer was called to the scene to figure out what to do with the lost pet, who had no identifying tags. While trying to find her owner, the officer struck up a deal with a man at the residence to keep an eye on Princess. But instead of taking care of her, the man decided to turn the pig into dinner.
The APD officer returned to where Princess was found, having made contact with her human family, and made the grizzly discovery.
APD Chief Brian Ahern was dismayed, saying:
“We were totally shocked and surprised to learn that the pig had been slaughtered. There was no reason to believe that that individual was going to do that.”
Carrie was horrified after learning their pet’s fate. She and her family had raised Princess since she was a piglet, at times bottle feeding her at home.
Carrie said that although she’s a supporter of law enforcement, she’s upset with how the officer handled the situation, noting that “He took it upon himself to give my animal away and then it got butchered.”
While they completely understand Carrie’s feelings, the Arcata Police Department stood by the officer’s decision.
APD Lt, Todd Dockweiler explained:
“Believe it or not, that’s not a super uncommon call for us. Obviously, that was a bit of a shock to everyone involved. Given the stage of the butchering process he was in, he must have slaughtered the pig very shortly after the officer left.
It’s just a really bizarre case. It’s just not clear what the thought process was. He obviously knew the pig didn’t belong to him and he didn’t have the right to slaughter it.”
Carrie shared that her mom confronted the man as he was still cutting up the pig, but he said she had “no right to be on this property.” The family is now fighting to retrieve Princess’ meat. She has no plans to eat her pig but doesn’t want anyone else to either.
APD handed the case over to the Humboldt County District Attorney’s office, and believe slaughtering another person’s animal is a crime.
