Curious case of missing ginger pig

SHE'S a super friendly, 50kg, three-year-old ginger piggy and she is still missing in action.

The pet was stolen from a Brisbane Tce home at Redbank on October 4 last year, and despite extensive efforts, Stock and Rural Crime Investigation detectives are still yet to sniff out a lead.

"Unfortunately the pig is still missing, and the matter has been filed pending further information, meaning basically that they have exhausted all avenues at this time, and unless new information comes to light, there is nothing further they can do," a QPS spokesperson said.

The pig is described as ginger in colour with distinctive black spots.

She is one of multiple stock and farm animal thefts in the Ipswich region, many of which are unsolved.

The calves are yet to be found and SARCIS did not receive any information from the public.

The horse was last seen on the property in early May.

Two horses from the paddock had previously strayed from the paddock onto the roadway.

It is suspected the horse escaped onto the road and was then caught and stolen by an unknown person.
