Target: Mark Anderson, Marinette County Board Chair
Goal: Have the Caldron Falls Bar and Grill cancel a cruel and unnecessary pig wrestling event.
A restaurant in Wisconsin is planning on hosting a pig wrestling event in which a pig will be trapped in an enclosure while humans chase after it and try to grab it. The event is chaotic, the crowd cheering and yelling while a terrified pig runs around frantically with nowhere to escape.
Pigs are some of the most intelligent animals on this planet. To subject these animals to unnecessary violence that could lead to severe injuries is inhumane and cruel and even illegal. Wisconsin’s anti-cruelty law states it is illegal to “[treat] any animal…in a cruel manner” including “[fights] between an animal and a person.”
Sign this petition to demand the county cancel this event due to its illegality and cruelness. These gentle creatures do not deserve to be subjected to these terrors for human entertainment.
Dear Mr. Anderson,
A restaurant in your county is planning on hosting a pig wrestling event. The restaurant, Caldron Falls Bar and Grill, is going to trap a pig in an enclosure with people trying to chase and catch the innocent creature.
Pigs are one of the most intelligent animals on this planet. It is cruel and inhumane to subject them to this chaos, terror, and madness. In addition, these events could lead to serious injury to the pigs and humans. It is unsafe and even illegal. In Wisconsin, the law states that it is illegal to “[treat] any animal…in a cruel manner” including “[fights] between an animal and a person.”
Please consider canceling this event. Not only is it illegal, but it is inherently cruel. These animals should not be subjected to this violence for human entertainment.
[Your Name Here]
