Beer-swilling pigs spark controversy

July 26th, 2006 | Posted by Real Beer

That Tasmanian pub with the beer drinking pigs finds itself under fire.

The Associated Press reports:

Pub owner Anne Free said Wednesday she was outraged that the tourist attraction had been attacked as cruel in the latest edition of a magazine published by animal welfare group Choose Cruelty Free.

Free points out the beer is watered down, and that a local animal rights group has already investigated and found the pigs are not mistreated.

    Up here a university is experimenting with strapping devices on pigeons to track air pollution. PETA* is complaining. Maybe your high flying pigs can do the job. (*P…heads for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)
