Stop Cruel Pig Wrestling Event

Pig Duncan Hull

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.

PETITION LETTER

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.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  3. God in heaven! I pray this stops! How horrible ! What is wrong with people! Such insensitity and twisted minds. No place in the 21st century for this garbage! What’s the fun in torturing and injuring animals? Sick!

  4. What a waste of resources the pigs are not harmed and usually dont get caught because they are usually greased up and slippery . This type of events have been going on for over a century. There is more cruelty and terror when a pig is slaughtered.
    Cattle prods are used to get the pigs into the chute then a 22 is fired into the pigs head sometimes it takes multiple shots to the head to kill and if that doesnt work the pig is hooked from the rear and hoisted up and its throat is slit and it takes several minutes to die.Millions of pigs are killed for food so how riduculus is it for someone to think that its cruel and inhumane to chase a pig around a pen.pigs are intelligent like dogs and nobody would say anything if your chasing your dog trying to catch it.

    • What do you mean, “the pigs are not harmed…”? You’re denying their EMOTIONAL harm, as if that doesn’t even exist! And if a dog was subjected to the same, callous kind of exploitative event, I’D be protesting it just as much!

      Of COURSE the slaughter of pigs (and other animals) is disgusting, but WHY DRAW THE LINE THERE???

    • That is the most ignorant comment I have every read. YOU are exactly the reason this ABUSE continues. Just because “these types of events have been going on for centuries” doesn’t make them AT ALL ACCEPTABLE! Your argument as to why this is all fine and normal is MORONIC. I pray you come back as one of these animals…abused for human amusement…strapped up and slaughtered, eaten for gluttonous selfish reasons to be someone’s tasty meal. Then we will see who’s crying for someone to make it stop!

  5. If you allow this to go ahead you should be ashamed! The restaurant owner needs to sit down and think about animal welfare and abuse! I’ve a suggestion for him ‘he could strip off and let people/pigs chase him round to see if they can catch him!”

  6. Don’t understand why Wisconsin is so pig headed with repeated inhumane pig wrestling events. Please have some compassion for animals who are more intelligent than your own dogs. Sick

  9. Why don`t these sick prats grow up!! Wrestle with each other and leave the pigs and all other animals alone!!

  10. They’re just sick bastard bullies and need a taste of their own fucking medicine!!

  11. where there is this hell hole – Pooh
    the hell is everywhere where the innocent and defenseless animals tortured and tormented
    the MAN is for these poor animals HELL
    resolves this hell – finally

  12. Mr. Anderson: I am disappointed that an apparent intelligent person like you promotes such lowbrow, primitive, pointless and very cruel event! Like many, it you appear to believe that pigs like mud. Not so! We raised pigs. Pigs need to be out door with a shaded grassy area, drinking water, and a mud pool. Latter is to protect their very thin skin from sun, insects & parasites. They will go in periodically but the rest of the time, they are on the grass. Please find a more compassionate, intelligent way to promote your restaurant! To involve the community work with creative teens to design an ad for your restaurant, offer a financial contribution toward their education for the best advertising. Please promote compassion and intelligence – you will not be thought of as a lesser man! These poor creatures will suffer enough when they are killed.

    Backwoods morons, Wisconsin sure loves animal abuse, the Internet is full of these “Wisconsin” abuse stories — fur farms, dogs, cats, farm animals..glad I don’t live there.

    Signed & Shared❗️😡

  15. Stop this cruel event, and ban it forever!

  16. These events are cruel, irrational, immoral, unconscionable, needless, hateful, insane, sadistic.  I believe they’re also illegal. 

    These savage acts against animals should be taken seriously.  Please put a permanent STOP to this brutality against pigs.  

    Pigs are highly intelligent & emotional animals.  Think of the suffering that’s inflicted on them.  Another activity should be chosen for the patrons’ jollies & entertainment. 

    The pigs & the rest of the animal world should be left out of this horror picture of abuse.  Animals deserve care, respect & love.
