Cancel Cruel Pig Wrestling Event

pig-wrestling-by-all-animals

Target: Luther Sperle, President of the Stoughton Fair board

Goal: Cancel brutal pig wrestling event where animals suffer and replace it with humane entertainment.

A cruel event that will see a pig chased around a small muddy pit and stuffed into a barrel must be cancelled. The Stoughton Fair in southern Wisconsin has organized a pig wrestling event where several four-person teams will pursue and manhandle a terrified animal. During the event, pigs reportedly scream and struggle to get away. Animals are sentient creatures and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. This cruelty is completely intolerable, especially in the name of entertainment.

Moreover, as the Alliance for Animals and the Environment rightly states, “Adults have a responsibility to teach children the importance of empathy and compassion for all creatures,” and this event risks sending the harmful message to impressionable minds that it is acceptable to abuse animals.

Last year St. Patrick’s Parish, also in Wisconsin, decided to discontinue its pig wrestling event, replacing it instead with an all-human game of foosball in the mud. Sign this petition urging Stoughton Fair to do the same, so that no more pigs are cruelly brutalized for the sake of a game.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Sperle,

I urge you to cancel Stoughton Fair’s pig wrestling event. This activity sees pigs chased around a small muddy pit, tackled, manhandled and stuffed into a barrel or dragged onto a platform. This is no treatment for a sentient animal who suffers immense pain and distress for the sake of fairgoers amusement. Moreover, the tide is turning against animal abuse as more and more people realize that animals are worthy of our compassion and respect.

Please follow St. Patrick’s Parish’s progressive move and replace Stoughton Fair’s cruel pig wrestling event with an all-human activity. Mistreating animals for fun is no longer acceptable in this day and age, please urgently cancel this event for good.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Hard to believe this is the land of the free and the home of the brave like it is some place the rest of the world should look up to and respect! Focking morons stuck in the middle ages. Let them wrestle each other then all eat the loser, nothing wrong with that, far more entertaining, one less moron, win win win.

  2. LAST INFANTILE AND GREED SCUM – NOT DESERVES TO LIVE WITHIN CIVILIZED SOCIETIES IN OUR ALL WORLD – ALL OF THESE CRIMINAL RABBLE IS BETTER DEATH AND NOT DISTURB THE REST OF THE WORLD POPULATION AND FUTURE GENERATIONS!

    Stop & pursue this deformity – instantly!

    Not humane than barbaric, really stupid and worthless criminal ASSHOLES! Or not?

    THE DEVIL SHOULD TAKE THEM AWAY – ONCE FOR ALL

    BUT FIRST: P A Y R E D E M P T I O N

    It’s time hold all those responsible for authorizing and overseeing the implementation of torture against fellow EARTH inhabitants & creatures accountable. A special prosecutor is the most comprehensive way to do that.

    W H O I S W A I T I N G F O R W H A T ?????????????????????????????

  3. end the cruel pig wrestling event now.

    Makes me livid….yet another species of animals being abused for the amusement (?) of idiots. Leave the animals out of the entertainment arena..for sick people to watch and participate.

  5. Good god whatever next !! Many people make me ashamed of being human. What other species uses, abuses and is just sickenly cruel and ignorant just for the ”fun ” of it. Shame on you who do it and shame on you who watch. You are just sick, get a life and fill your time doing something useful and good.

    Que les humains se montrent comme dignes d’être humains et non comme une vulgaire chose un déchet, car à votre tour vous serez traités comme de la merde.
