It's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it. The Double D Livestock Company in Greybull, Wyoming, has turned pig wrestling into a lucractive business.

If there's a summer carnival anywhere in Wyoming, chances are the folks at Double D will be there challenging locals to step into the pen and catch a greased-up hog.

Double D is the official contractor for dozens of pig wrestling events across Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, including the Wyoming State Fair, the Big Horn County Fair, Crook County Fair, Freemont County Fair, Goshen County Fair, Hot Springs County Fair, Niobrara County Fair, Park County Fair, Sheridan County Fair, Teton County Fair and Washakie County Fair.

Along with providing the animals, the Double D crew also regulates the contests, during which teams have one minute to capture the pig and place it into a barrel. The competitions are divided into different age groups, using smaller piglets for kids ages 8 and under, youth ages 9 to 15 and larger hogs for adults.
