Taipei, Feb. 20 (CNA) A Taipei-based animal rights group has reiterated a
call for an end to a generations-long divine pig contest, in which swine are
force-fed to enormous sizes before being sacrificed in religious rites.
Chen Yu-min, director of the Environment and Animal Society of Taiwan,
repeated the call during a ceremony at the Sanxia Zushi Temple in New Taipei
over the Lunar New Year holiday to award the person with the heaviest pig.
