As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong.

Hairlessness in Akhal Teke (and Belgian Draft and Saddlebred) horses happens more frequently than in other breeds.
The Akhal Teke breed has been severely selected towards having a thin and sparse coat/mane/tail ever since the breed began to steer towards being more of a show than work horse.
Inbreeding has been linked to this problem. Many foals born without hair (aka Hairless Foal Syndrome) do not make it to be an adult—but a handful like this specimen do (though often with many health problems).

But then the Hungarian National Association of Mangalica Pig Breeders was established in 1994 with the purpose of saving the breed.”

In the face of food insecurity and poverty, about a third of food produced globally is thrown away and not eaten. In Britain, it is estimated that 40% of produce is thrown away because it doesn’t meet aesthetic standards. (Read: it’s too ugly.)
In response to this, and the fact that 2014 is the EU’s “European year against Food Waste, the French supermarket chain Intermarché has launched a campaign called “Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables” (Les Fruits et Légumes Moches) in which they sell their oddly-shaped foods that would otherwise be thrown away by a farmer.The food is 30% cheaper, and each store sold an average of 1.2 tons of the food in the first 2 days.
