Laws on keeping pigs are anachronistic. They are entirely concerned with keeping pigs to be killed and eaten. In the past people kept and killed them in their backyards. The terrible screaming when they were killed upset neighbours, so laws were put into effect prohibiting the keeping of pigs in towns. Pigs were seen only as food, but now many people keep them as companion animals. Pigs are wonderful friends and companions and I can speak from personal experience from having kept them for twelve years. Unlike dogs, pigs are not aggressive. They don't attack people, and they don't smell. Neither do they upset people with their noise. Dogs bark at night. Pigs just go to sleep. Pigs are the most wonderful of friends. They are full of joie de vivre. Every day is a sunny day when you have a pig in your life. I can think of no reason why more people should not own them in urban areas. Everyone should have the opportunity of getting to know a pig.
