YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio, Dec. 11 (UPI) -- Police in Ohio said an abandoned vehicle found in the middle of a road had a pot-belly pig in the back seat when it was towed away.

Youngstown police said officers responded to a report of an abandoned vehicle around 1:30 p.m. Monday and they arrived to find a 2011 Nissan Cube parked perpendicular to the curb with heavy front-end damage, two flat tires and both air bags deployed, the Youngstown Vindicator reported Tuesday.

Police said there was a 250-pound pot-belly pig in the back seat of the car when it was towed away from the scene.

Officers said they tracked down the owner of the vehicle, a Pennsylvania woman who said she had left Penelope the pig in the car while she visited a friend in Youngstown. She said she had noticed the vehicle missing, but had assumed the "kids took it."

Police said they are looking for suspects in the auto theft and animal authorities have been notified of the incident.
