YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Police responding to a report of an abandoned vehicle in northeast Ohio say they found an unexpected passenger in the back seat: a 250-pound potbellied pig named Penelope.

The Vindicator in Youngstown (http://bit.ly/VzyyDA ) reports the vehicle apparently was stolen while the Pennsylvania woman who owns the pig was visiting a friend in town. On Monday afternoon, officers found the pig sitting in the vehicle, which appeared to have crashed. It had two flat tires and heavy front end damage, and the air bags had deployed.

A police report indicated officers had the vehicle towed with the swine still inside, and an agent from an animal protection organization was contacted.

Police were looking for suspects in the vehicle theft.
