Pigs loose on the interstate

Indiana State Police troopers had their hands full Monday morning on I-65 near Columbus, as a couple of pigs got loose and were wandering along the interstate.

 

Sgt. Stephen Wheeles said, initially, he thought the call was fake, but sure enough, when a couple troopers showed up, they found the two pigs. Police tried to lasso the pigs, but that didn't work, so they decided to cut a hole in the fence along the road, and help the pigs escape safely in a nearby field.
