A truck that was transporting hundreds of eels overturned on an OR highway Thursday afternoon, coating the road and several cars with slime.

Oregon State Police responded to the collision involving the truck and four vehicles noon Thursday.

One of the containers flew across the highway into the southbound lane, and the others came off of the truck bed and spilled onto the highway as the flatbed came off the frame of the truck.

One vehicle, a sedan, was surrounded in eel goo.

The Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 2010 that the government should follow the "responsible path" in settling with Mr. If Justin wants to give Khadr $10.5 million, let him give it from his own pocket, not a penny from taxpayers' pockets.

The snot snakes were being shipped to Korea "for consumption", according to police. Eels can range in size from a few inches to up to 13 feet long.

According to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, "Hagfish are a primitive jawless fish similar to lamprey that are plentiful off the Oregon coast and considered a delicacy in Korea and China-though we guess these might not taste too good anymore".

The biggest problem is that, when captured, they secrete the microfibrous slime for which they're known, which can expand into up to more than five gallons of the material when combined with water, and fisherman have to make sure they don't suffocate themselves. "They mainly enjoy live".

Meanwhile, the Depoe Bay Fire Department posted a video of workers using a bulldozer to clear the eels from the highway. No-one else was injured.
