Who knew a bunch of piglets running around on a road in China would look so ridiculous and cause such a traffic jam? Fast little things, aren't they?

A truck carrying several dozen piglets overturned on a highway in the Guizhou Province, the Telegraph reported yesterday, forcing the closure of the road to traffic while people in orange vests ran around trying to collect the animals that escaped from the broken vehicle.


The video is kind of great. Why did one of the traffic cops think he could just herd them in between some cones and they would stay? And, no, slapping them on the ass doesn't make them stay, either. Perhaps piglet-herding is something you should learn at traffic cop school or something.
