Saving the bacon

These little piggies almost made it back to the farm when their truck overturned in Springfield, Iowa. It has been reported that the accident was caused by the driver steering to sharply around a bend in the road.

The result was pig pandemonium as fifty pigs managed to sneak out of the upturned lorry. Highway Patrol Sgt. Rick Fletcher said, “they just kind of wandered around in the roadway; obviously they go every which way but the way we wanted them go.” Luckily the driver of the lorry was wearing a seatbelt at the time and walked away unharmed.
