End the Greased Pig Chase

        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!

      I saw on the news here in NC this morning about a "Christian" rodeo that is having one of these. How horrible!

      I care deeply about all living creatures and showing kindness to every animal on earth, human or otherwise. I think kindness is essential to all if we are to even hope for a better world. The Greased Pig Chase sounds very, very unfair, and it's a way of punishing the innocent for a crime they didn't commit. That goes against all religions and against all kind of morally good principles for which this country claims to stand. PLEASE END THE GREASED PIG CHASE!!! Sincerely, Elsie Reimenschneider

      What a stupid, pointless, inhumane act. Why am I not surprised it's happening in Lancaster, PA??

      This is animal abuse, plain and simple, and needs to be stopped. Smart, sensitive animals like pigs should not be exploited for so-called "fun." Shame on Lampeter
