Piglet racing slammed by PETA

Animal rights activists PETA have claimed the Paddington Tavern’s piglet racing event, and are seeking legal advice in an attempt to stop the event this weekend.

Queensland representative Jaylene Musgrave said the piglets were put under mental and physical stress, however the RSPCA said pig racing was not illegal and there was no evidence of ill-treatment.

The event typically draws a crowd of around five hundred, and raises proceeds for the Liver Foundation.
