How Now, Big Sow?

A large hog stopped traffic Tuesday night on interstate 380 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Police say the rear door on a truck carrying hogs apparently opened while the truck was motoring down the interstate.

The giant sow, estimated to weigh between three and five hundred pounds, walked around on the highway until police could round up the animal.
