Oasis Bar 'N' Grill Event Featuring Little People Chasing Piglets Called Offensive

Posted: Updated:

WHALEYVILLE, Md.- Some people are outraged over an event that was held at a bar this past weekend in Worcester County. 

The show that's drawing criticism was held at the Oasis Bar 'N' Grill on Old Ocean City Road in Whaleyville, where little people chased piglets.

Some people are calling this event offensive, by demoralizing little people and endangering animals. 

Brandi Mellinger happened to be at the event, while working for a liquor company. She's upset with the actions from the event. 

"I'm emotional about this, the pigs don't have a voice. It's not fair to the animals. They don't have a voice," Mellinger said.

Lizzy MacDonald, the president of the Delaware chapter of Little People of America, is also upset. 

"It's offensive to us," MacDonald said. "We like being called little people, people with dwarfism, we don't like being referred to as the 'M' word."

WBOC visited the Oasis Bar 'N' Grill on Thursday and asked to speak to the owner. We were told he was not there, and later asked by police to leave the property.

Worcester County Animal Control says they don't condone the activity that occurred at the event, but from what they saw in the video, they say no state laws were broken.
