2,200 Piglets Let Loose on the Highway

A tractor trailer carrying 2,200 pigs overturned on an Ohio highway Monday, lightly injuring the driver’s fiancée and setting the piglets free. More than 300 piglets died and the highway was closed for eight hours as local authorities tried to round up the animals. As many as 1,500 were captured, but officials are not optimistic about recovering them all. “We’ll try as hard as we can, but we probably won’t retrieve them all,” said Fire Chief Dean Fox. “If somebody finds a pig and wants to turn it in, call the local law enforcement and we’ll try to take care of it.”
