Whole ‘lot of squealing’ on Missouri highway ramp

Pig 03Yesterday, reported KMBC TV in Kansas City, Mo., a highway resounded with “a lot of squealing” after a hauler on the ramp from I-435 North to I-35 turned over rounding the curve, spilling a load of live pork. A few of the pigs reportedly perished but a larger number escaped the trailer’s confines. KMBC gave the subsequent long capture efforts something of a light-hearted treatment (given that no humans were injured in the crash), with the exception of their reporting of the traffic consequences resulting from closure of the ramp through much of the day. Which no doubt were huge.

But I figured that if you needed another reason to take it easy around tight curves, their video footage most definitely provides. Check it out here.
