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.
