WASHINGTON COUNTY, Colo. -- Are you missing several pigs?

It appears five hogs escaped their pen and hit the road last week in Washington County, on the Eastern Plains.

The pigs, all gilts [that's females who has not yet farrowed for you non-country folk], were found on Highway 36 near mile marker 135.5 running around on the highway, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

The pigs aren't small -- they all weigh 215 to 250 pounds.

Deputies posted on Facebook about the missing pigs last week, but no one has claimed them yet.

If you're missing some pigs, call the Washington County Sheriff's Office at 970-345-2244.
