Hungary: 5,000 rabbits block traffic on highway

Five thousand rabbits were blocking a Hungarian highway Monday after the truck that was carrying them crashed. The animals came free after the truck collided with another vehicle and overturned, police officials said. The M1 highway - the main road connection between the capitals of Hungary and Austria - was expected to be closed for several hours while authorities tried to gather the loose animals, media reported. Highway Patrol Spokeswoman Viktoria Galik could not immediately be reached for comment.
