UPDATE: Henry the Pig returns home to Calgary pub following weekend theft

A pub in downtown Calgary is hoping the public can help them find a beloved pig statue stolen from their establishment over the weekend.

Henry the Pig was taken from The Unicorn, located in the 200 block of 8 Avenue S.W., early Sunday morning.

The fibreglass statue is about two feet tall and four feet long.

The pignapping was caught on camera; surveillance footage appears to show a heavy-set man in shorts and a baseball cap sitting on Henry’s back, before picking him up and walking out the door.

Following the hog heist, staff at The Unicorn took to social media to plead for Henry’s safe return using the hashtag #BringHenryHome.

A statement on the pub’s Facebook page describes Henry as a “good soul” who “only ever wanted to greet people as they came in the door.”

“You have kidnapped not just an employee, but a member of the Unicorn family.”

“We only want Henry back, no hard feelings, just bring our little porker home.”

Just two weeks ago, another Calgary eatery released surveillance footage of a man stealing two Japanese Maple trees from outside the establishment.

The trees, worth about $700 each, were taken from the Royale Brasserie on 17 Avenue by a man walking his dog.

Ryan Duguay, 31, was later arrested and charged.
