A pig found roaming at large, tipped off the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office to a larger animal abuse case. In late June, the Sheriff’s Office responded to a complaint from a citizen about a pig roaming in the garden. Somehow, the pig’s owner was determined to belong to Allen McEntee, 47, of Bend. The deputy contacted McEntee to talk about the roaming pig, and found a number of animals that appeared to be neglected. The sheriff’s office returned several days later with a veterinarian to inspect all of the animals. As a result, McEntee was arrested on eleven counts of animal neglect. Eight goats, eight pigs, five rabbits, a cow, and her calf were all confiscated. One of the pigs has since died.
