Ahhh. . . summer in Wisconsin. After our long cold winter we welcome the farmers' markets, Brewers baseball games, family picnics, gardening, and sunshine.
Unfortunately, summer in Wisconsin also means that the mean and unenlightened are bored, so local pig wrestling contests abound. Pig wrestling is cruel, embarrassing for most Wisconsinites, and against the law.
This site is brought to you by Alliance For Animals and the Environment (AFAE), Wisconsin's largest non-profit animal advocacy organization.
AFAE has notified Wisconsin pig wrestlilng organizers and expressed concerns regarding their events. We are deeply concerned about the illegality of these events and the threat they pose to animals, participants, and spectators.
We have consulted with two attorneys with expertise in Wisconsin's animal law and are advised that these events are in clear violation of the Wisconsin Statues.
Do they believe they are above the law?
Please browse this website and educate yourself about pig wrestling and make it a summer resolution to put an end to this display of man's inhumanity.
We are better than this.
