A second 17-year-old has been arrested in connection with the theft and killing of a pig belonging to a Woodland High School student.
The Yolo County Sheriff's Office reported that the second youth, a Woodland High School student, was arrested Monday evening on suspicion of grand theft, felony animal cruelty and conspiracy to commit theft and animal cruelty. He was booked into Yolo County Juvenile Hall. Another 17-year-old was arrested in the case earlier Monday.
On Saturday, Woodland High School student Marika Osegueda, 17, reported that someone had taken her pig from the Laugenour Land Lab at 39839 County Road 17A in the Woodland area. Osegueda was raising the pig as part of the Future Farmers of America program.
Investigating deputies found a bloody hand print on the gate leading to the missing pig's pen. The ground outside the pen was covered with blood, according to a Yolo County Sheriff's Office news release.
Officials said remains of the pig were located, and they believe the two youths in custody are the only suspects in the case.
