This is just plain weird...

Quote:
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.

Dried pig ears are commonly used as a treat for dogs.

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.

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.

For some reason that story appeared before this one, apparently the crime has been solved...

Quote:
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.

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.

The 32,000 ears were worth about 60,000 kroner (US $8,700).

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.

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.

Police said they also were investigating whether both men may have been involved in earlier burglaries at PetCare.

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.
