Ominous Swiss blood trail leads directly to…a butcher shop

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 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.
