Most of the Runaway Pigs from Vermont Farm Returned Through the Trail of Hot Dog Buns

About 250 pigs have escaped from a farm in Vermont, causing a nuisance for drivers and passers-by. But most of them have returned. Thanks to the trail of hot dog buns and good ol’ fashioned corralling!

"The pigs have been allowed and remain to be allowed in the town right of way so cars are unable to pass, people can't walk on the road because the pigs chase them," said Town Clerk Angela Eastman on Thursday.

According to the farm owner, Walter Jeffries, the fence enclosure was allegedly damaged by his former employee, who he had already reported to the police.

The ruckus of the pigs in town cost Jeffries tens of thousands of dollars in fines as a public hazard.
