Nearly 100 Pigs Run Riot on Malaysia Highway

Tue Aug 17, 9:51 AM ET

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Nearly 100 squealing pigs ran riot on a Malaysian highway on Tuesday after a truck overturned and released them into four lanes of traffic.

"It was a mess," said a policeman at the scene who only gave his first name, Rahim. "The pigs were all over the place."

Just two traffic policemen tried to round up the 98 pigs as the traffic swerved to avoid injured animals, the national news agency Bernama reported.

The truck crashed south of the city of Ipoh, around 180 km (110 miles) north of Kuala Lumpur, the agency said. Posted by Hello

This is the Malaysian version of the story...

"Traffic policemen were seen throwing stones at the animals to try and herd them back to the lorry. "

And "A check showed at least six pigs died in the accident."

Poor bigs but I can't stop laughing
