California deputies use Doritos to catch wayward pig

WATCH California deputies use Doritos to lure wayward pig back home

Giant escaped pig lured back to his California home with help from Doritos

The pig was running around a neighborhood when the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Office were asked to lend a hand.

The caller reportedly described the road hog as a real porker, comparing it to "the size of a mini horse".

"They located the pig but had no way to gain control of the animal", the sheriff's office said in a press release.

According to the Instagram post, Deputies Ponce and Berg knew exactly where the big fella needed to go "due to previous calls", so they used the Doritos to get him home safely.

The deputies then came up with a yummy plan.

Armed with a bag of Doritos, the officers made a trail of the tasty tortilla chips in an attempt to lead the massive pork chop back to its home.

"We were able to put him back and secure the gate", Deputy Ponce said.

Apparently, it wasn't their first encounter with the mammoth pig.

Deputies responded to the unusual radio call reporting a swine "the size of a mini horse" roaming loose, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department officials said in a written statement.
