Two screaming pigs were rescued by police and drivers on the side of the M27.
The runaway animals brought traffic to a stop at junction 9 for Whiteley, westbound.
The incident happened just after 2pm but police tweeted a photo of one of the rescued pigs just before 2.40pm.
On Twitter the roads policing unit said: 'Both pigs are fine. A big thank you to members of the public for helping us capture the animals.'
