Festival-goers can eat the meat that comes from dead pigs as they watch live ones scream and suffer.
It's a common practice in many towns, but some people are starting to speak up for the animals who cannot.
"Pigs were punched and kicked, body slammed, jumped on, dragged against fences and thrown in barrel," Jordan Turner, president of the Global Conservation Group (GCG), an animal advocacy organization in Wisconsin, told The Dodo. After one event, GCG even offered to take the sore and injured pigs to Farm Sanctuary after their ordeal, but their offer was refused. "They were slaughtered the next day."
