ORANGE CITY, Iowa — Officials in northwest Iowa are looking for someone swiping swine.

The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office says it’s investigating the thefts of dozens of hogs from two separate facilities.

The Sioux City Journal says deputies were called Monday to investigate a theft from a hog building seven miles northwest of Rock Valley. According to a news release, deputies discovered that someone had entered the property and stolen 35 white large landrace pigs, each weighing about 250-280 pounds. The theft is believed to have taken place sometime from May to August.

Last week, Sioux County deputies investigated the theft of 30 pigs, all weighing 250-280 pounds, from a hog building four miles southwest of Inwood. That theft is believed to have taken place sometime from Aug. 3 to Aug. 17.
