The Pigfest’s organizers, sponsors and participants should work to transform Pigfest into an animal-friendly fest. Although events promoting community spirit and charitable giving are laudable, contributing to animal slaughter is not.
Instead of supporting the unnecessary killing of animals, insist on a healthy and humane fest menu. Encourage vendors to prepare and sell today’s high quality and flavorful meat substitutes and other food that incorporate local fruits, vegetables and grains.
No animal should have to suffer and die for a community event.
