Eastbound I-94 near Barnesville was shut down Sunday as authorities wrangled several loose pigs after a crash involving three semis.

KSTP reports one semi was carrying pigs and another was hauling cattle, which remained trapped.

Responders constructed a temporary enclosure to keep the pigs from wandering off and a second trailer was brought in to transport them, according to FOX 9.

No one was injured.

The Minnesota State Patrol temporarily closed a freeway exit and the eastbound lanes of I-94 near State Highway 34.

Driving conditions from blowing snow cause several vehicles to spinout in the area.

Barnesville is located approximately 30 miles southwest of Detroit Lakes, Minn.

WCCO and KARE 11 have video.
