Ephrata Police this morning reported the arrest of Kelly A. Lehman, 29, of Lancaster for disorderly conduct during Tuesday’s Pig Chase at the 97th Annual Ephrata Fair.

Lehman’s picture is posted on a Facebook animal-rights activist page as “Kahdashia Adams, of Reading.” The Facebook page, entitled “EPHRATA FAIR:: NO MORE PIG CHASE,”  initiated a campaign that invited people to protest the Ephrata Fair Pig Chase.

Police said staff met with Lehman at the start of the event and cautioned her not to interfere with or disrupt the pig chase event. Prior to the end of the event Lehman jumped the fence and entered the pig chase area disrupting the event.

Lehman was arrested and removed, charges will be filed, police said.

With no rooster chase this year due to the Avian Flu, the chase took center stage on the old softball field of Grater Park.

      Bullshit! Pigs ARE harmed doing this both psychologically and physically. We will be taking legal action to end this!
