Seattle animal control officials are investigating the case of a man who left a small dog and a pot-bellied pig wearing sweatpants to overheat in a car.

According to police, a bystander saw the odd couple suffering and called 911. Authorities arrived to find the animals panting and lethargic. They also found empty food and water bowls, errant feces, along with the keys in the ignition and the doors unlocked.

Officers gave the animals water and were able to locate the car’s owner in a bar down the street. The man allegedly became agitated and demanded that he be shown the errant feces in the car. Officers were happy to oblige. The case has since been turned over to animal control.

It remains unclear why the pig was in sweatpants.
