“What’s truly heartbreaking is that these little pigs go in there and have no idea what is about to happen,” Paris told The Dodo. “They are so tiny and innocent. We witnessed kids bending these animals’ legs back, grabbing their ears and snouts and throwing their entire body weight on them. The pigs don’t stop screaming.”
Hosted over the course of a day, the pig chase event features around 20 pigs and piglets — some going through the cruel spectacle multiple times if a winner isn’t crowned. Each chase is broken up into an age group, so young children, teenagers and adults all participate.
