Cash offer to replace pigs

By Brooke Hafs. CREATED Aug 15, 2014

Green Bay, WI--Activists weren't happy about a recent pig-wrestling fundraiser that a Green Bay-area church held, so they're offering the bishop cash if he takes the pigs' place in the muddy pit. 

The annual pig wrestling fundraiser at St. Patrick's parish in Stephensville went on as planned last weekend. The group, Shark says the wrestling is animal cruelty and child neglect. They delivered video from the event to the Diocese of Green Bay, demanding it take action against the parish. 

A spokesperson with the diocese replied, "We are going to review all of the material and discuss this. We are just days out of the event, we're going to sit down with the parish and all have a discussion."

The group, Shark, says by the end of the week, they plan to send a letter to the Attorney General and the state police to investigate the event.
