  3. 'Pig Rassle' gets police protectionRead the original story

    Friday Aug 8 | Times Herald

    Shirley Manson, the lead singer of Garbage, a rock band that was established in Madison in the early 1990s. Manson released a statement requesting that the event be cancelled permanently. Melissa Tedrowe, the state director of The Humane Society of the United States, also released a statement to express her concern. "St. Patrick Parish's planned 'Pig Rassle' does not convey the Catholic church's spirit of compassion," Tedrowe said. "Animals can endure serious physical and psychological trauma during such activities, and forcing animals to suffer for entertainment's sake is wrong. The church should cancel this needless event and find a form of entertainment that is in line with Wisconsin's values." Ken Bilgrien, a deacon at St. Patrick, said the parish doesn't condone animal abuse. He said the event, which is part of an annual fundraiser, is fun for both human and animal participants. "We fill the stands with hundreds of people. Are you kidding that our own parishioners would allow us to pound the pig in the head with a hammer?" Bilgrien said. "In 44 years, we've never injured a pig." The parish said the event has been cleared by the sheriff's department and the state attorney general. In accordance with the state's pig disease-control rules, all of the pigs used in the event will go to market on Monday, Bilgrien said. St. Patrick's Pig Rassle was cancelled twice in the '90s due to protests organized by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/1krcFt2 ) reported.
