Teen arrested in theft, killing of high school student's pig

A 17-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with the theft and killing of a pig that was being raised by a high school student as a Future Farmers of America project.

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 FFA 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.

This morning, sheriff's detectives contacted and interviewed a 17-year-old youth from Woodland. He was subsequently arrested and transported to the Yolo County Juvenile Hall on suspicion of felony grand theft and felony cruelty to an animal.

Thee remains of the pig have since been located, and the investigation is continuing, officials said.
