This is just plain weird...<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Thieves stoles 32,000 pigs ears Wednesday from a Danish petfood store which is now offering a near-$1,500 reward to help catch the culprits, Danish media said.<br><br><br><br>
Dried pig ears are commonly used as a treat for dogs.<br><br><br><br>
Danish police said they had no idea of who carried out the raid on the store in the town of Tistrup, on the Jutland peninsula.<br><br><br><br>
Denmark is the world's largest exporter of pig meat and its pig population outnumbers the country's 5.3 million humans by more than two to one.</div>

For some reason that story appeared before this one, apparently the crime has been solved...<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">A 29-year-old Danish man was jailed Thursday for two weeks on charges he stole 32,000 dried pig ears from a Danish company that makes treats for pets.<br><br><br><br>
A 26-year-old accomplice who admitted taking part in the weekend theft was also charged, but released, police said. Neither were identified in keeping with Danish law.<br><br><br><br>
The 32,000 ears were worth about 60,000 kroner (US $8,700).<br><br><br><br>
On Sunday, the pigs ears were stolen from a container outside the PetCare company in Tistrup, a village 186 miles west of the capital, Copenhagen.<br><br><br><br>
Police found nearly 16,000 of the ears in a pet shop in Horsens, 62 miles northeast of Tistrup. They haven't found the other 8,000 pairs.<br><br><br><br>
Police said they also were investigating whether both men may have been involved in earlier burglaries at PetCare.<br><br><br><br>
In some countries, pig ears, along with chicken feet, duck tongue and yak testicles are considered a delicacy by humans. In Denmark, a Scandinavian nation of 5.3 million, they're not.<br></div>
