3 little pig houses left at road where semi crashed
Xenia, Ohio — An anonymous apparent fan of pigs and fairy tales is offering some shelter for any piglets still loose after a semitrailer crash last week in southwest Ohio.
Motorists on U.S. Route 35 in Xenia Township west of Dayton noticed Monday the three small houses along the highway, built fabled “Three Little Pigs” style: That means one of straw or hay, one of sticks and one of bricks.
The Dayton Daily News reports that no big bad wolves had huffed and puffed enough to blow down any houses by late afternoon.
Authorities aren’t sure how many of the small pigs might have evaded round-up efforts. They say about half of the 2,200 Indiana-bound young pigs were killed when the truck overturned, and nearly all the rest were recovered.
