A pig large enough to win the swine contest at the Iowa State Fair was thrown from a moving truck today in Longyan City, China.

The 450 lbs hog broke a leg in the fall and was helpless against fast moving traffic in a tunnel. Traffic officer Ruan Lingying was first on the scene and told the Mirror “The pig broke its left foreleg when it fell from the transport cart so it stayed in the tunnel. “If it hadn’t been handled in time, it would have caused car accidents, because the visibility in the tunnel wasn’t very clear.”

The cage appeared to break open as the trucker rounded a curve in the tunnel. The driver continued on unaware that he dropped a large piece of cargo.
