Letter: What do kids learn from pig scramble?

I live in Marin County, where we love all animals and our Marin Humane Society is very strong in protecting all of them.

I was astounded to see that this horrible abuse of small piglets was being conducted in the name of childish fun or adult profit in Woodside! What are you thinking and what do these actions teach your children? That abuse is OK as long as kids have fun and adults make money? Shame on you!

Woodside is such a beautiful area, and to think such cruelty goes on there takes away from that beauty. Please tell me that this piglet abuse will be stopped so I can get the idea of an "inhumane Woodside" out of my head!
