There was another article about pigs in the paper the other day. Thankfully the story isn’t depressing like the 12,000+ pigs dumped into the river in China!
This story is about the laws governing pigs as pets. We are Facebook friends with a piggy in NY that is in the process of trying to revamp the laws to allow pigs as pets. We are excited that his case is gaining so much traction. We wrote a letter for him to provide in his lawsuit and hope it helped to provide support for his case. Sometimes laws should be revised, especially when considering that pigs are often smaller and cleaner than other domestic animals.
We must add, though, that pigs are a HUGE responsibility and people must do sufficient research to understand what is involved with having a pet pig.
Providing real life stories of living with a pet pig was the main reason we started the blog (along with sharing Cocco’s amusing antics). We hope to enlighten those that are interested in having a pig as a pet to ensure that the pig doesn’t end up abandoned once the parents discover what a commitment it is.
To that end, we have received many emails from people who have come across this blog and have written to us directly with questions. We appreciate and respond to every email and applaud those that take having a pet pig seriously. We have one in our queue now and we are off to answer Leah’s questions
