Photos: Greased Pig Chased at Kenton County Fair

The Kenton County Fair kicked off Monday night -- and the Barnyard Olympics were a hit!

No event was more... slippery, though, than the annual Greased Pig Chase.

For you city slickers, these country folks grease up a pig and then release a group of competitors to chase the poor little guy. Once the pig is captured, the captor has to bring the pig back to its cage or trailer. 

There are two divisions: junior and open.

These photos from Monday night show you what you missed (and hopefully inspire you not to miss it again!):
