Swiss police follow blood trail and find bacon
Swiss police followed a long blood trail of 20 kilometres following calls from horrified motorists on Monday.5 November 2008
KUETTIGEN - Swiss police can be excused for fearing the worst.
Acting on emergency calls Monday night they hurried to a rural road in northern Switzerland where horrified motorists reported a long trail of blood - and what they believed was evidence of a brutal crime.
A police statement Tuesday said officers followed the blood for 20 kilometres to the town of Kuettigen only to find that a butcher's supply van had spilled its cargo. A barrel of pork blood had overturned inside. The van had been headed for a local sausage factory.
