I’ll confess – I wasn’t even aware there was such a thing as pig wrestling. But lo, there it was on the fairgrounds in Utah County, Utah.
It’s actually more pig corralling than wrestling, as the object appears to be to climb into a muddy pit with said pig and corral it into a barrel as quickly as possible.
With all of that said, a group of animal rights activists predictably had to interrupt this game for fair goers, a game no more cruel than an every day rodeo.
The results sure weren’t what they expected.
Because this happened…
Pro tip – If you’re a squirrelly nerd in a rainbow clown wig, don’t take on a dude willing to wrestle pigs in the mud. You will lose. Every. Time.
Via The American Mirror:
Animal rights activists may want to rethink the idea of confronting pig wrestlers in the heat of action.
One such person learned that the hard way Wednesday.
“We were joking about it the other day,” Brody Steele told KUTV. “People were calling us racist animal abusers,” referring to his Confederate flag.
All was going well until a group of protesters in rainbow-colored wigs breached the pen. It’s not clear whether they were looking for a fight or to rescue the slimy pig.
Video shows some shoves between the wrestlers and protesters and one who breached the pen being promptly ejected head over heels.
Watch toward the end of this news report, where you will see the protester get tossed over the fence, and another shoved out of the way.
Of course, we don’t condone any form of violence against activists of any kind.
However, it’s important to note that according to this Fox 13 report, the Utah County Fair officials agreed to give the animal rights loons time to interrupt the proceedings and hold up their signs… but they refused to leave.
Naturally, the protesters are looking into assault charges.
Comment: Were the pig wrestlers justified in dumping the protester over the fence when he refused to leave?
