Five employees at a New Mexico fast-food joint are looking for new jobs after a police officer found a pig drawn on his burger wrapper.

The incident happened at a Burger King in Clovis.

The officer, Timo Rosenthal, posted a photo of the wrapper on Facebook, quickly catching the attention of restaurant management.

Rosenthal also said the burger had been overcooked, Delish reports.

"Well, while on lunch break (and in uniform) I ordered food at Burger King and received this," the officer's post said. "The patties were burnt and the burger was of very poor quality. Guess that was the last time I ate at Burger King in Clovis, NM."

Burger King has apologized and will reportedly be providing the police department with a catered lunch soon in hopes of improving relations.

"What occurred is unacceptable and not in line with our brand values," the burger chain told Delish.
