Runaway pigs shut down traffic in Louisville

A section of I-65 in Louisville shut down this morning due to runaway pigs on the I-64/I-71 ramp.

Yes, runaway pigs.

A semi carrying a load of pigs overturned, sending the adorable little animals into traffic. The interstate had to be closed in that area to round them all up. You can catch a glimpse of the scene in this screen grab from a TRIMARC camera, via Wave 3 News.

If you were one of the many who were late for work due to the spill, how in the world did you explain that one to the boss?

    Well… is the driver ok? Was anyone hurt?

      The driver? I’m more worried about the pigs… maybe some escaped the butcher. The truck driver obviously took the turn too fast.

    I’m curious why it seems that, every time a trailer or pig cages tips over, the cages pop open. Maybe the door mechanisms could be a little more secure?

    You know some local idiot was on Twitter making jokes about the cops being there.

    Pigs being called adorable? Interesting. Guessing the writer has never spent time around them.

      And 502 has been trying to get his sister/wife a job with her for years but Katrina said she actually wanted to help get recruits there and she was way to butt ugly. Said that face would make her lose all her business. Now his wife/sister is pissed and got all his kids in the family together and decided to protest on I-65.
