A pig transporter has overturned on the M4 motorway in Wiltshire, UK, BBC News reports.
Dozens of porkers were spilled from the double-decker trailer. Thirteen swine are confirmed dead, and vets are treating an unspecified number of injured.
A spokesman for Wiltshire Police told the BBC: “The remainder have been recovered into a second transporter.”
But a Highways Agency spokesman appeared to contradict the Police’s claim, saying the emergency services were merely “doing their best to round them up”.
Motorists are advised to avoid the area, between Junctions 17 (Chippenham) and 18 (Bath), or to bring plentiful supplies of white bread and brown sauce.
Whether a media frenzy similar to that which greeted the Tamworth Two‘s escape remains to be seen.
