|File photo: Pigs carried in a trailer
Eight pigs caused huge traffic jam on a bridge in the West Siberian city of Novokuznetsk after they overturned the trailer in which they were being carried and escaped, Mangalorean.com reports.
"The pigs might have been under stress during the ride and started rocking the trailer," a spokesman for the local police department said.
The driver of the vehicle, traffic police and sympathizers joined the search for the pigs, he said. Other drivers wishing to cross the bridge faster helped haul the trailer away.
