Pigs fall from truck onto I-29

Email

BUXTON — Piglets were falling out of a truck and onto Interstate 29 for several miles near here Wednesday until the driver eventually noticed, the North Dakota Highway Patrol said.

There were “dead pigs all over the road,” Sgt. Greg Smith said.

The truck driver was apparently unaware that piglets he was transporting from Winnipeg, Manitoba, to Iowa were tumbling out of the vehicle about 11 a.m.

“They were kind of scattered for several miles,” Smith said of the piglets.
