Pig Chef Statue missing since Jazz Fest

A statue of a pig dressed in a chef hat and smock was stolen from a nearby restaurant during Jazz Fest.  The police were called, a report was filed and the New Orleans Police Department began searching for the pig, but there are so many suspects they are not making any progress.

The cops spotted a pig riding on the streetcar but after he was detained and interrogated, it was discovered he did not own a chef uniform so he was released.

This problem is upstaged (but only barely) by the snakes in the State Capitol.  Really.  I can’t make this stuff up.
