'Sleeping' swine found outside police station
10:38 CEST+02:00
On Friday morning, a father and his daughter discovered an unpleasant Midsummer surprise at the entry of a police station in Helsingborg when they found two pigs, apparently slumbering.

“I was walking the dog together with my daughter,” the man told local media.

“Suddenly she said: ‘Look, daddy! The pigs are sleeping!'”

But the swine weren't sleeping. They were actually frozen carcasses weighing ten kilograms each. Police do not yet know who put the dead pigs outside of the station or what the motivation might be.

“The people who did this are sick,” Thorsten Persson, commander at the Helsingborg police, told Sydsvenskan newspaper.
