I realize I am obsessed with anything that impedes my travel, like left lane cruisers, detours or god forbid, road construction. Road hogs are right up there, too, but this kind of road hog, I've never run into before.

This took place in Woodbury on Sunday at the exit ramp, as reported by FOX9 News. Seems a semi carrying a load of actual hogs had a mishap at the exit ramp along I-494 leading to I-94.

The Minnesota State Patrol said a semi carrying the livestock rolled over on the interchange and spilled a load of hogs out onto the highway.

I would imagine the loose hogs were thinking "free at last" but to their disappointment the Minnesota State Patrol was working Sunday to round up the hogs on the loose and get them on another carrier.

Fortunately, the semi driver, as well as anyone else, were not injured in the rollover. In the MnDOT video you can see the liberated hogs grazing along the roadside and wandering around on the interstate.

Some of the comments on YouTube were entertaining;

Not sure where the farm these pigs came from is, but it is very obvious to me that they are used to being around people. They appear to be pretty healthy pigs as well. Whoever raised them took pretty good care of them from what I can see.
Lol I member early 2000’s a truck full of cows crashed off 494 in oakdale and they were roaming in a friends back yard. We helped the cops corner one even. Lol

You can just watch the first 10 seconds, and that's pretty much the whole video

They should be sent to a sanctuary that is the tradition in America anytime an animal fights for his freedom.
Just by luck a truck carrying BBQ grills and BBQ sauce crashed in back of the scene a few minutes later, followed by a van full of butchers heading to the butchers convention in Woodbury. And to top it off a knife salesman stopped to lend a helping hand to all involved in the accident.
Oh just let them go. Eggs and bacon in the morning please:) I suck:(
Remember when 52 bridge was built a semi full of cows overturned. My dad was rounding up cows in the industrial area. Here piggy, piggy

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
