Over a dozen pigs escaped forcing Ontario police to clear highway
Ontario police were forced to escort a group of innocent pigs to safety after they were found hog-ging a highway on Sunday morning.
A few minutes before 8:30 a.m., South Simcoe Police received a call about several pigs that were seen walking along Highway 89 and 10th Side Road in New Tecumseth, Ont.
South Simcoe Police tweeted about the humorous ordeal just before 11 a.m., writing, "our officers will tell you every day is different and this pig tale is proof."
According to police, the pigs escaped by getting under a fence and were seen walking across the road to another property.
Our officers will tell you every day is different and this pig tale is proof. Today B platoon was dealing with a call at Highway 89/10 Sideroad for 15 pigs on the road!

Officers were able to corral the 15 pigs to safety, none of which were injured during the incident. Police made sure the adorable animals were safe and sound until their owners came to pick them up.
South Simcoe Police said anyone who sees wildlife on major roads and are concerned for their well-being should contact local police.
Here's hoping these friendly hogs don't managed to escape the piggy bank again anytime soon.
