Pigs force closure of highway in Daviess County

Here’s a lighthearted story for you, courtesy of our friends at LEX18. This morning, police were forced to close Highway 56 in Daviess County near West Louisville because a semi-truck carrying pigs overturned. None of the pigs were hurt, and the driver only suffered minor injuries, but crews struggled to round up the animals, who took the opportunity to enjoy some mud and sunshine:

I’m not gonna lie, I got a lot of enjoyment from this story.

    How great would it be if that red truck had a BBQ Pit on the back?

    This was on my way to work. It’s West Louisville on the west side of Owensboro, actually the complete opposite way of Louisville the city. Just saying. Lol

    I love that the ad I got above this story was for Oscar Meyer Bacon. “Perfect Bacon Every Time”

    Looks like one of them is hurt, unless he is just taking a nap in the middle of the road.

    When I was a little kid, I had an uncle in Indiana who raised hogs. When we would go up there for Christmas, I used to pester my dad to take me to the barn to see the baby pigs. I always insisted on holding one of the little squealers, and then the car would smell like pigs all the way home. I had some very patient parents. 🙂
