Ban the Shenandoah County Fair piglet torture!

This petition had 35 supporters

The Shenandoah County Fair’s greased pig scramble is a cruel activity that terrorizes and injures over one hundred piglets each year. The innocent and helpless creatures are chased by a crowd of laughing children who leap on them, grab them brusquely, and pull on their legs; this leaves the animals with broken bones and internal injuries.
This is a clear case of animal cruelty that has been going on for far too long, disguised as “entertainment.” Furthermore, it sends a message to impressionable children that animals are lesser beings, that it’s acceptable to treat innocent animals like objects for the sake of their own joy and merriment. Some argue that the pigs will be slaughtered for meat anyway, but that is not an excuse to make their last hours and days on Earth painful and miserable.
There is nothing entertaining about the torture and harassment of small, intelligent creatures. These piglets are beings, they have feelings just like us. They are not objects. Please, sign this petition to demand the Shenandoah County Fair cancel this cruel and abusive event.
