Cancel the Pig Wrestling Events at Nappanee Apple Festival

The Nappanee Apple Festival has scheduled pig-wrestling activities, during which contestants chase pigs around a pen lined with screaming crowds in an attempt to place the pig in a barrel. The pig has to suffer from being tackled, body-slammed, jumped on, yelled at, kicked, punched and finally thrown in a barrel.

Please ask the organizers to cancel the pig-wrestling events and replace them with a more humane alternative!
