Swine slip and slide: Pig wrestling new to Allen County Fair

Not all pigs at the Allen County Fair have pristine hides and pose for the judges. The pigs in the arena Wednesday evening were coated in caked-on mud and had just one mission: not get caught.

As part of the Team Pig Wrestling Contest, 31 teams of four attempted to catch a fenced-in swine in less than 45 seconds, all while trying to not slip in the muddy arena.

The pigs ranged from about 4 to 7 months old and weighed between 100 and 290 pounds.

This is the first time pig wrestling has appeared on the fair schedule.
