Controversy over pig wrestling?
TOWN OF STEPHENSVILLE -- Controversy over pig wrestling? Saint Patrick's Parish in Stephensville is hosting its 44th annual round-up this weekend, but a Wisconsin-based animal advocacy group is hoping to stop the event.
One of the activities at the event includes the Pig Rassle where individuals or teams are given the task to place a pig at a designated location, according to the parish website. The challenge is typically set within a fenced area containing water and mud.
The advocacy group claims pigs are being punched, kicked and thrown by participants, according to NBC26 in Green Bay.
