In our concrete tangle of SigAlerts and clogged rush hour lanes, the occasional animal-in-traffic story can be noteworthy, especially when it has a happy ending. For the quarter-ton hog who was blocking traffic on D Street in Victorville overnight, life luckily goes on, says KTLA, who describe the distress call logged by San Bernardino county sheriff's deputies from a motorist about the pig who had escaped from a fenced enclosure. The pig was a slow mover, though; it took 3 hours to get the animal safely into a horse trailer.
