STAFF at Hog's Breath Cafe in Hervey Bay are still hoping for a Christmas miracle that will see their stolen pig mascot returned to them.
"Piggy", the beloved 30cm stuffed toy, was perched on the front counter of the Boat Harbour Dr restaurant last Sunday night when it's believed two male customers stole her.
The theft has left staff devastated, as they say the pig, which was dressed as Santa and sang Christmas carols, brought joy to everybody.
The crime is being investigated by police after the incident was captured on CCTV footage, but Piggy's owners have said the matter would not be taken further if the thief simply returned the toy.
