Talk about a great escape! Law enforcement in Ohio never expected to spend their Monday wrangling over two thousand piglets who managed to escape when the semitrailer transporting the piglets turned over, sending curly tails flying across the highway.
About 200-300 may have perished in the crash, and another 1,500 were apparently recaptured by firefighters, police, EMTs, and regular citizens, which means hundreds are currently roaming the streets of Xenia Township in Ohio.
Predictably, Twitter had a bit of fun with the news, which, despite its entertainment value, never made it on any of the cable networks.
The escaped piglets would’ve been my MH370. Redirect all resources, all talent, singular focus for day after day.

Until I see a picture or video of hundreds of little piglets running through a field, I will now consider today a failure. #pigletchase2015

So if I drive to Xenia and find one of the missing piglets, can I keep it or…? http://t.co/3v4WdsY4PL

Comment below: If you found one of the escaped piglets, would you keep it?
