Dozens of pigs have blocked the tunnel in Sichuan province for about three hours after the truck they were traveling in overturned on Tuesday night, according to local media reports.
Reports from Chengdu Economic Daily has it that at around 7pm, Tuesday, a truck carrying up to 20 pigs fell into in a tunnel on an motorway connecting Naxi district and Xuyong county.
The frightened pigs subsequently fled the truck and ran onto the road, disrupting traffic in the tunnel until about 10pm, when the road was cleared.
Traffic police had to direct moving vehicles in the tunnel to prevent another accident while also helping the truck driver catch the fleeing pigs, which weighed at least 100kg each, the report said.
It took the police three hours to get all the pigs back in the truck. Unfortunately, one pig died, and more than 10 were injured. No other casualties were reported from the accident and the cause was not clear.
In August, traffic police in Guizhou had to round up more than 200 piglets following a similar accident in which the truck transporting them overturned.
For the Ostriches
Five ostriches on wednesdat escaped from a farm and disrupted traffic in southern China by running almost 50km down a motorway before they were caught.
The birds, each standing at over two metres tall, ran on to the Pearl River Delta city motorway in Foshan, Guangdong province, on Tuesday.
Guangzhou Daily quoted local police on Wednesday as saying that the five ostriches blocked traffic in Shunde district after they started running in the direction of Beijiao on the motorway.
Video footage taken by drivers and passengers along the route showed the birds running alongside cars and blocking lanes.
Their escape caused delays and disruption along the route, although traffic was relatively light because many people had left the area for the week-long national holiday that started on Sunday.
Officers were called to the scene to try to catch the birds. Two of the ostriches were reported to be slowing down when officers caught up with them at an intersection and bound their feet.
Two others were intercepted by other police officers, helped by members of the public, at a bus stop.
All four were taken back to the farm in Lunjiao that they had escaped from.
Unfortunately, all four birds died from exhaustion having run an estimated 50km in hot weather.
The farm owner said he had managed to catch the fifth bird on his own.
It was reported that the ostriches had been kept for about six months in a shed.
“They have been behaving but I forgot to lock up the shed properly this morning,” the farm owner said.
He said the birds had charged the gate of the shed together and broke open a wire hook holding it in place.
Liang told the newspaper that this was the last time he was going to try keeping ostriches.

A 39-year old woman, Iwuagwu Onyinyechi, has been apprehended by the Ogun police command after she defrauded a Christian church the sum of N100m, under the disguise of assisting the church to raise fund for her charity programme. Onyinyechi was able to defraud the church with forged documents three good times.

The police command in a statement read by its spokesman on Sunday Abimbola Oyeyemi, said Onyinyechi’s arrest followed a complain filed by a lawyer of the church, Godswill Ojakovo, to the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, in which he said that his client, the church, was defrauded by Onyinyechi through an act of forgery.

According to the spokesman, Oyeyemi, the suspect claimed to have obtained a Local Purchase Order (LPO) from a property company and pleaded to the church to help fund the LPO, after which a sum of N33.118m was successfully transferred into to her bank account.

While the church was awaiting the repayment of the loan, Onyinyechi came with another two LPOs she claimed she got from a Catholic Hospital, Iju and a private school in Ikorodu, Lagos State. Another sum of N77m was given to her, after convincing the church with relevant documents and proofs to back her claims.

But as soon as Onyinyechi got the last payment in September 2018, she went loose and this prompted the church to make discreet inquiries about the LPOs she submitted and found out that they were forged.
