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.

Read this narration by twitter handle, @Wenogetjob, which tells of how he eavesdropped on a couples conversation of a duping man. The man rented a house for 2 month, bought expensive items worth up to N50 million on credit. Left the rented apartment with all the appliances he has not paid for, after winning the trust of the sellers.

Hey peepz, I have a gist tho I don’t know if it’s true or not..But I will say it Sha. I was just walking on the street 2receive fresh air when I saw a couple. d man was telling his wife about an incident. I kukuma slowed down an walked behind them to hear d full gist.

It was more like a scam story. A certain man walked up to a Landlord in our area and requested to rent his apartment for 2 months, with the excuse that he was traveling to Canada and just came to Lagos for the Visa Processing.. They agreed on 150K.

The man paid and took ownership of the apartment.He then went out to Vendors in town and negotiated to buy expensive items on lease. With installment payment plans.. He was said to have collected home appliance worth N50,000,000 from various vendors.

He then took them all to the apartment one by one to build trust. At least once they know he lives there, they can easily come around and pack their stuffs if he defaults, these people didn’t know what would hit them was going to be deadlier than Tsunami.

As agreed with the Landlord, the man packed out even earlier than expected… Left with all the items, of which he had not finished the payment..and the Landlord was so happy to have struck a better deal He immediately rented out the apartment to another family.

One by one, the creditors began to come in and same story was relieved to them.. Some fainted, some threatened hell fire …. To cut the long story short, Baba Ijebu was arrested alongside the new tenant.. You know Naija now… #POLICE  no wan hear wuen

They were only saved after a Landlord intervened. He is a legal practitioner and took up the case. But sincerely speaking. I wonder how some people feel at rest knowing fully well their victims would suffer.  I guess it all centers on lack of conscience. This is bad #dojon
