Pigs on the road - level 3

Pigs on the road - level 3

15-08-2013 06:00

Chaos on a motorway in China as police try to catch a group of stampeding piglets.

Officers could be seen running after the agile animals in China's Guiyang province after the truck carrying them overturned.

Police finally outsmarted the runaways when they started cooling themselves under a rescue truck with the road eventually able to be reopened.

Difficult words: stampeding (moving fast), piglet (young pig), agile (able to move fast), outsmart (defeat by being clever), eventually (in the end), reopen (open again).
