Pigs Exploited for Entertainment, Naas, Co Kildare.

Pigs Racing for…
A Few Laughs

A.F.A.R has called to cancel a planned pig race that will take place in Naas, next week, on the grounds that racing pigs is cruel and inhumane.
The race will be part of a family fun day and according to Fine Gael councilor Darren Scully, pigs will “be allowed to go around the track at their own pace.” The councilor got the approval of the ISPCA.

On the other hand, Bernie, A.F.A.R spokesperson, has stated that “pigs do not deserve to be degraded or used as part of what is an event that is basically


centered around club and pub participation” and that it sends out a message to children that it is ok to use animals as entertainment for humans.
A.F.A.R and ALiberation vehemently encourage people to oppose this race as humans should not have to resort to using animals for entertainment purposes.

Please email the councillors (see post-it on the left), especially Cllr Darren Scully.
