Woodside: Rodeo official says pig scramble a gentler affair this year

Published Tuesday July 5

Kids caught pigs in the annual pig scramble at the Woodside junior rodeo on Mon Jul four but it was not the spectacle of years past, according to the man who manages the rodeo.

Also completely new this year: people with signs out in front of the grounds of the Mounted Patrol of San Mateo County to protest an event in which kids chase pigs around a dusty arena and drag them back to a judge for a ribbon.

Except there was reportedly no dragging. In a big change in the instructions this year, kids who caught a pig were told to wait for an older person to walk over, gently pick up the pig and carry it back to its trailer, rodeo chair Michael Raynor said.
