A Wisconsin church is trying to save its bacon.
Check it out:
St. Patrick Catholic Parish, in Stephensville, is canceling its annual parishioners vs. pigs mud-wrestling fund-raiser after critics launched an online petition campaign against the event that garnered more than 81,000 signatures.
According to Christian Today, the 44-year tradition – dubbed “Original Pig Rassle” — is being scrapped in exchange for a human mud foosball tournament.
The rassle was part of the church’s annual fund-raiser, called the Roundup. This year, the Roundup is planned for August 8 and 9 and will include bands, a parish dinner, a parade and the human foosball event.
