Swiss police follow blood trail and find bacon

KUETTIGEN, Switzerland (AP) -- 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 -- what they believed was evidence of a brutal crime.

A police statement Tuesday said officers followed the blood for 12 miles into a town (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.
