Last weekend the Stoughton Fair in Stoughton, Wis. had to postpone its annual Friday night Pig Wrestling event because of the warm temperatures and concern for the pigs’ safety. The good news was that cooler temperatures on Sunday made for nice afternoon event.
For those who don’t know how to pig wrestle, the goal is for a team of four people to pick up a pig and place it on top of a rubber tub in the fastest time. I’m not really sure what is in the “mud” but I’m guessing it would have been a better idea to be one of the first contestants. I’m not sure what happens when you squeeze a pig, but it can’t be good. It was a fun event and in all chases the pig seemed to be the one who was winning. I think they let the people place them on top of the tub after rubbing their faces in the mud for a while.
