Animal Justice is calling for animal cruelty charges against a transporter after five pigs fell off a moving tractor trailer driving on the busy Highway 401 outside of Kingston, Ontario.

Two of the terrified pigs were found on a nearby county road, two pigs were found on highway offramp, and the last pig was found farther down the 401.
