From my local paper:

Big pig falls onto Interstate 80 this morning east of Sparks, closing highway briefly
April 8, 2009

At least one lane of eastbound Interstate 80 near USA Parkway east of Sparks was closed for about 25 minutes this morning when a 500-pound pig fell out of a vehicle and was on or near the highway, Nevada Highway Patrol spokesman Chuck Allen said.

“A 500-pound hog had fallen out of a vehicle some how and had at least broken one leg,” Allen said. “When we arrived we dispatched the animal.”

It wasn’t immediately clear if the animal was running into traffic or was just near the highway after the incident that happened around 7 a.m., Allen said. Interstate 80 is open now, he said.
