West Lampeter Fair in Lancaster, PA is a community-sponsored event that draws visitors of all ages. Many of the events are fundraisers for sports and organizations for the Lampeter-Strasburg School District. One of the events that is held in the rodeo stage is a Greased Pig Chase. Not only does such an event directly contradict the family-friendly atmosphere, it is abusive and torturous to the animals involved. Several areas in the United States have made such competitions illegal and have consequently banned them. The West Lampeter Fair should eliminate the Greased Pig Chase from its line-up of events.

Studies have shown that not only do pig chase contests cause emotional harm to the animals involved, but they often suffer broken limbs and backs as a result. Please uphold the family-friendly atmosphere you promote and end the pig chase!
