Drunk'n Monkey Bar and Hotel (Wisconsin) is sponsoring Pioneer Days where at least two events (chicken toss and pig chase) take place outdoors in frigid temperatures. Animals will be used as instruments of amusement for the pleasure of the attendees. Change.org petitioner requests your help by signing his petition (at https://www.change.org/p/stop-the-chicken-toss-at-ridgeland-pioneer-days) to stop the animal abuse before this event takes place. Would you please submit your signature to show your support; I'd appreciate it.

According to the petitioner: Wisconsin Crimes Against Animals statute 951.02 states that "no person may treat any animal, whether belonging to the person or another, in a cruel manner".

The petitioner contends that the chicken toss is "cruel to the chickens and teaches children that animals are no more than objects, such as a ball," and that frightening the pigs to get them to run is also abusive since it's not a pig's naturally playful way with humans.

I get where you're coming from and I get where the petitioner is, as well.

Thanks for taking the time, as you have, Will - it's appreciated :)

As part of the "fun", more than 200 chickens will be tossed into the crowd, one by one; each person who catches one gets to keep it to whatever end they'd choose. "During the same event, pigs are frightened and chased by large groups of children."
