Pork chops!

Pigs, the other white meat.

Where will they wind up?  Malaysia is a Muslim country I'd imagine there isn't a huge call for bacon and the like there.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Malaysian police say they are searching for 100 live pigs stolen from a truck by armed robbers.

Police official Roslan Bek Ahmad says three men with machetes hijacked the truck Wednesday as it was leaving a pig farm in northern Perak state. The driver was tied up and left by the roadside.

Roslan said Friday that police had recovered the vehicle in central Negri Sembilan state, but it was empty.

He said police believed the pigs were transferred to another truck to be sold in Malaysia. The pigs are worth an estimated 83,000 ringgit ($27,000).
