It was a sight no driver even imagined they would be seeing as they got into their cars early that day, but just so happened to be an audience to on the morning of June 8th on the Hankyu highway in Osaka. According to NHK, a cargo truck transporting 37 pigs rear-ended another vehicle that had been parked on the side of the road. The collision created the perfect opportunity for 19 of the pigs to gun it and make an *almost* successful escape, although some were seen simply huddled together. 阪神高速ブタがたくさんあるいてる pic.twitter.com/FMIPjrtIuc— yasu (@imaiyanen) June 8, 2017 阪神高速空港線 豚さんが逃げ出したみたいです pic.twitter.com/BrUK3GgkZN— 右利きの18番 (@sakuman888) June 8, 2017 Some areas of the highway were inevitably closed down as people worked to gather the runaway animals without injury. Although the accident gave the pigs the chance to get a little taste of freedom, they were soon placed in a different truck and were back on the road to their original destination. 阪神高速の高速隊が脱走した豚さん追い込んでる。こんな業務もあるんだな･･･｡ pic.twitter.com/W0HT62KHCX— くわがた㌥ (@KuwagataR) June 8, 2017 阪神高速で豚が脱走しててワロタ pic.twitter.com/8zOJz4GHzI— 山根 翔 👻 (@sho_yamane) June 8, 2017 Now that these pigs have had a bit of "practice," however, maybe they'll be more successful next time...
