Traditional Pig Chase At Woodside Junior Rodeo Draws Protesters

Published Monday July 4

WOODSIDE — Squeals, both human and animal, pierced the air on a sunny 4th of Jul in Woodside as kids under the age of ten raced to be the first to snatch a running pig by its hind legs.

It’s called the Pig Scramble. Parents say it’s a harmless game but animal rights protesters call it something else — cruelty to animals.

“ very distasteful … we don’t think it’s right what they are doing to the pigs,” remarked Belle Stafford, a member of Concerned Neighborhood Citizens.

“I would like them to stop the Pig Scramble. I think there are other forms of entertainment for kids” Terri Ducay added.
