Every year, the municipality of Sainte-Perp├ętue, in Quebec, holds an event known as “festival du cochon” (pig festival).

During this event, domestic pigs of different ages and sizes, as well as wild boars, are forced into an arena where participants chase them, catch them, lift and drop them in a barrel; put plastic rings around their necks; and force them to run through doors or cylinders. 501 more words
