CALGARY — A beloved Fibreglass pig named Henry that was taken by bacon burglars from a Calgary bar is heading home.

The 14-kilogram ornament — a fixture at the Unicorn Pub in the city's southwest for many years — was purloined sometime early Sunday morning as last call was approaching.

Thursday afternoon, an anonymous caller contacted local radio station CJAY 92, saying the ornament had been "found by a friend'' and agreed to bring it down.

Henry showed up on the station's loading dock last evening, sporting a Hawaiian shirt and a note that read, in part "Just a pig looking for a party! Had a wicked time!''


Station staff were to escort Henry back to the pub Friday morning.

Unicorn owner Mel Lafleur had appealed on social media for Henry's safe return, saying no questions would be asked. (CTV Calgary)
