“The officers were to guess when the person broke they were probably surprised I had a pig and said:” We don’t want to deal with this,'” the single mother of four said. “The agent was like, we definitely think she stepped in and made it where Dumplin was and thought: ‘No. We don’t want no part of this.'”

The woman told the news station they adopted Dumplin from a rescue last year, called him the “perfect animal.”

“The moment I saw him I knew that he loved me immediately,” she said, encouraging others to adopt the “ton of pigs in shelters that are not at home.”

The neighborhood the woman lives in her residence in just a few weeks ago, is not new to break-ins, Fox 59 reported.

Anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana in 317-262-8477.
