Hunt­ing pests for school fundraiser

Stratford Press - - News -

Dozens of pigs, rab­bits, goats and pos­sums met their fate dur­ing the Toko School Pig Hunt.

Held over Labour Week­end, the weather was per­fect for the suc­cess­ful event. In the kids’ sec­tion there were 91 rab­bit, hare, pos­sum and goat head en­tries. There were 78 pigs en­tries, and 31 pigs were weighed in on the day.

The event also fea­tured en­ter­tain­ment, with flights from Pre­ci­sion He­li­copters, a bouncy cas­tle, ob­sta­cle course and lolly scram­ble keep­ing the kids busy.
