Over 1,700 piglets run loose from overturned truck in Iowa


DES MOINES, Iowa (WOI) — More than 1,700 piglets were loose on the highway after a truck overturned in Iowa Thursday.

State troopers said, in the initial investigation, the semi was traveling too fast as it entered the ramp on I-35.

The Animal Rescue League of Iowa posted on Facebook what they’re doing to help get the loose piglets to safety.

The organization says about half of the piglets were moved to another truck and were still working to corral more.

No humans were injured in the incident.
