A Chinese theme park has been forced to apologize for pushing a pig off a platform in a “bungee jump” used to entertain guests. The animal was heard squealing in videos posted to social media as it plummeted almost 220 feet from a platform at the park over the weekend, according to BBC News.

The report by the BBC said the backlash against the stunt on Chinese social media was significant enough to draw an apology and a vow from the “Meixin Red Wine Town” theme park to “improve our marketing of the tourist site, to provide tourists with better services.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The theme park, located in the Chongqing region of southwest China, tied the 165-pound pig to a bungee cord, with a purple cape around its neck, for an event dubbed the “golden pig bungee jump” to launch its new bungee jump attraction on Saturday, the BBC said.

The report says the pig was tied to a pole, then carried up to a platform by several employees. It was then attached to the bungee cord and pushed off.

There is no law against cruelty to animals in China, but as the BBC reported. The animal survived the stunt but was later sent to a slaughterhouse, according to Chinese media.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) weighed in on the stunt on Twitter, writing, “Just imagine the outright terror of being forcibly strung up by your legs and thrown from a high platform. Pigs experience pain and fear, just as we do, and this kind of disgusting PR stunt should be illegal.”
