Pig Park Update

Readers of PLN will recall that we have previously reported the fact that the Washington State Penitentiary (WSP) in Walla Walla has bought 40 plus acres from the department of Wildlife for $80,000 which will be used as an "employee park"

According to an August 22, 1991, story in the Walla Walla Union Bulletin 4 acres will be used as a park while other parts will be used for training purposes such as obstacle courses and such to help WSP guards work the fat off "to help correctional officers meet minimum physical fitness requirements."

A two-story house on the property is already being used for weapons training. The warden, James Blodgett voices plans to share the entire training area with other area law enforcement agencies.

We ask our readers to keep PLN informed of new developments at the pig park. Send clippings and other relevant information to Paul Wright or send to PLN at the Florida address.
