BERKLEY, IA (KCCI/CNN) - Crews on an Iowa road had a big job on their hands, wrangling in 200 pigs off the road and out of the way bacon lovers everywhere.

A truck carrying the pigs overturned Tuesday morning in Berkley, IA.

Iowa State Patrol and Boone County, IA deputies were left to try to get the animals back inside the truck trailer.

Fortunately, some of the pigs rested beside the truck instead of running from officers.

The driver of the truck was checked out at the hospital, but wasn't seriously injured.
