Spring Meadow Farms’ Pig-Wrestling Events Canceled!

October 2008

After PETA received word that a Maryland farmer intended to hold several pig-wrestling events in a four-week period, we immediately contacted organizers to cancel the abusive event. Upon receiving an unsatisfactory response, PETA worked with local activists and authorities to voice objections to the violence that is inflicted on pigs for the sake of “entertainment.” During the first event, PETA obtained video footage documenting that pigs were being tackled, dragged through the mud, and slammed into buckets by overweight grown men. At the 11th hour, the remaining pig-wrestling events were canceled, and the owner was cited for the cruelty that these events inflicted on the pigs!
