HYRUM, Utah (AP) -- Pig wrestling is coming to northern Utah.
Teams of five people chase a pig and try to put it in a barrel in the fastest time. The pigs come from local farmers.
The Hyrum City Council is hoping to host an event at the city's rodeo grounds. A Utah Pig Wrestling coordinator says she will submit a proposal.
Winners of the local contest --- which will probably be in June or August --- will move to the state competition in Salt Lake City.
County officials say there's quite a bit of money to be won at the state competition.
If successful this year --- officials say the event will be expanded next year to Richmond, Lewiston or Logan.
