HART, Mich. -

Authorities in West Michigan say a man broke into a pig farm, slashed two 300-pound sows and stole a third one that later was found butchered in his refrigerator.

The Ludington Daily News and MLive.com report, 28-year-old Christopher Lee Abbatoy of Bitely was arrested following the Saturday break-in at Valley View Pork Farm in Oceana County's Colfax Township.

He was arraigned Monday on breaking and entering, larceny of livestock and malicious destruction of property charges.

A message seeking information on whether Abbatoy had a lawyer was left by The Associated Press with a District Court official in Hart.

The sheriff's department says workers arriving at the farm Saturday found an extensive amount of blood.

They found the wounded sows and noticed a third missing.

The wounded sows were later euthanized.
