Social, intelligent, and loyal, pigs
are highly sensitive animals who enjoy communicating
with each other, making nests, and relaxing in the sun. But from September 13
to 16, the Nappanee Apple Festival in Nappanee, Indiana, has scheduled “pig-wrestling”
activities, during which young animals will be frantically
chased, grabbed at, and tackled in a pen lined with screaming crowds. Being trucked to and fro and
subjected to the violence and general chaos of these events is a terrifying and
hazardous ordeal for the pigs, who often
suffer severe injuries such as broken limbs or backs. PETA has asked event organizers to replace
pig wrestling with any number of humane alternatives but to no avail. We need
your help today!

Please urge
the Nappanee Apple Festival organizers to cancel the pig-wrestling events. And please,
spread this alert far and wide!
