PlainSky, Nebraskans: Watching Hog Wrestling, Sioux County Fair

Watching Hogs, Sioux County

Watching Hogs, Sioux County

Yup, at the Sioux County Fair, they wrestle hogs. In mud.

Teams of three try to grab a greased pig and stick it into a barrel in the center of a muddy pit as fast as possible, and boy, are they fast. The winning women’s team this year did it in 6.3 seconds.

What’s more, at least 300 people show up to watch the spectacle; these young cowboys look on tensely as a Sioux County High School team takes its turn in the pit.

More photos to come later.
