Debbie James, was travelling along the A47 towards Norwich to get to work.
Mrs Jones, said: 'Traffic stopped abruptly, I could see high viz jackets in the distance. Eventually I got closer to the incident, at first I thought it was a lose deer with someone holding its head, then to my surprise a gentleman in a lime green t-shirt was standing with a tethered pig.
