This is animal cruelty! Why would this be considered to be okay or fun when an innocent animal is being mistreated with the potential of being harmed. This activity should be banned from the fair. Pigs are very intelligent animals and feel pain the same as you and I. They are frightened by this activity which they have no understanding of. Shame on all that participate in this cruel event. These pigs are terrified and there are plenty of ways to be entertained outside of causing distress to an animal. Would anyone question for a second that this was abusive if the victim were a dog instead of a pig?
