Cannabis eating pig leads to drug arrest

Forget sniffer dogs, this feral pig has proven its drug detection abilities.

Police have charged a Toowoomba man with drug production and possession after a pig was found chewing on the accused’s cannabis plants last Wednesday.

Police were originally called to a disturbance on the property, but on arrival found a pig eating suspicious green leaves.


Following an investigation the police seized a 1.6 metre tall cannabis plant and 140 grams of the drug.

The 44 year old man will appear in the Oakey Magistrates Court later this month.
