Target: Anita Krajnc, Co-Founder of Toronto Pig Save
Goal: Thank the Toronto Pig Save from sparing multiple pigs from the traumatic greased pig event.
A greased pig chase was going to be held at the South Mountain Fair in Canada until the Toronto Pig Save swooped in and saved the day. During this event, children were to run around an enclosed pen, grab a greased pig, and then pull him or her through a hula hoop.
Pigs are smart, sensitive creatures who can solve simple puzzle and sing to their young. They have been found to be as smart as the average three-year-old child. Putting pigs through an ordeal like this is terrifying, traumatic and can even cause serious physical injury.
Sign this petition and thank the Toronto Pig Save for all their hard work and for shutting down this needless and cruel event.
Dear Ms. Krajnc,
Recently, your organization was able to spare multiple pigs from needless mental and physical trauma. The South Mountain Fair was planning on hosting a greased pig chase until your team stepped in.
As you know, pigs are incredibly intelligent and sensitive creatures. Unfortunately, the reality is most people do not treat them with the respect they deserve. These animals, who are as smart as a three-year-old child, are often treated as objects.
I wanted to extend my gratitude and thanks for all the hard work and dedication your organization has demonstrated in protecting these animals. If pigs could speak, I know they would shower you with all their gratitude as well.
[Your Name Here]
