Several pig carcasses fell off a truck on I-75 Wednesday morning near Sarasota, causing an extremely metal traffic jam.

Twitter user @gra_diesel first posted the pig parts while traveling northbound on I-75. According to WFTS, the pigs fell off a transport truck, causing a lane to be closed so work crews could hose off the highway.

Be careful out there, folks.
