Novokuzetsk (Russia), June 9 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Eight pigs have caused a huge traffic jam on a bridge in the West Siberian city of Novokuznetsk after they overturned a trailer in which were being carried, a police official said.
“The pigs might have been under stress during the ride and started rocking the trailer,” a spokesman for the traffic police department said Wednesday. The pigs escaped.
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.
