Allow Greg Brown to keep his therapy pig in Batavia, IL

This petition had 4,455 supporters

Greg Brown is an incredibly nice man who has lived in Batavia for a very long time. Greg suffers from depression, so he adopted a therapy pig (Pigly Brown). His pig is loved by Batavians, and so is Greg. The City of Batavia, specifically Laura Newman, sent Greg a letter that told him that he had to remove  his pig from within city limits. Laura cited an ordinance that prohibits livestock, and Laura (the Batavia City Administrator), stated that "swine are specifically prohibited from being fewer than 200 feet from a business, residence, street or alley". Mental illness is an incredibly serious issue, and Pigly deserves to call Batavia his home. The City of Batavia needs to allow Greg to keep his beloved therapy animal. Let's support Greg and Pigly, along with all others that suffer from depression.


Send Laura Newman an email to tell her how important Pigly is to our community:

Let the city know how much this means to you. Send an email to the city council and mayor of Batavia at:

Pigly even has his own facebook page.
