24,849 SUPPORTERS – 25,000 GOAL

During the Pioneer Days festival held every February in the town of Ridgeland, Wisconsin, the entertainment includes a “Free Chicken Fly,” in which over 200 live chickens are tossed off a roof to the crowd below to keep as pets.

We cannot let this harmful animal abuse to go on this year!

The event will likely happen February 16th, but the town has kept the date under wraps because they know animal advocates like you and I will try to stop the abuse — and they are right, because we must stop this heinous celebration.

It’s unclear whether the pioneers of Ridgeland participated in this disturbing tradition, but there’s no reason for it to continue to be held in the 21st century, now that we’re much more enlightened about what entails animal abuse. The chickens are undoubtedly scared and because they don’t fly well, many get injured or even die in the process.

Years ago, the county district attorney investigated the chicken toss to see if it violated a Wisconsin animal cruelty statute. Based on a short video he watched, the D.A. decided the chickens weren’t being harmed and allowed the event to continue. What kind of person sees animals flying off the side of a building and decides that’s fine?!

It’s 2019, not the pioneer days, and it’s time for the chicken toss to end. Please sign and share this petition telling the Drunkin’ Monkey Bar & Hotel, which hosts Pioneer Days, to end this event.more
