Pig scrambles: Residents, veterinarians debate issue

Published Tuesday July 5

A swift and extemporaneous debate on the values of the Old West took shape on Tue June 28, at the Woodside Town Council meeting as members of the public disputed the character of a Jul 4th junior rodeo event in which screaming kids chase and subdue small pigs, also screaming, in a dusty arena on the grounds of the Mounted Patrol of San Mateo County.

The pig scramble had not been placed on the council’s agenda, so the council members were not allowed to discuss it or take action, so the arguments from the public were over ideas.

The public comment included remarks by 2 veterinarians, one who communicated via a letter read to the council and the other who spoke in person.

Article length: About 670 words.
