Please help me petition to save this veteran's pet pigs! 


"Most of the community don't know me, I tend to keep to myself. I bought my house here in Maywood seven years ago. I am here posting asking for help although I have always prided myself on not asking anything from anybody. I am a disabled combat veteran (70% VA rating), seven years military, infantryman, honorably discharged, two deployments to Fallujah Iraq with the Marines. I have had two potbelly pigs (Kevin Bacon and Zoey Hamilton) for the past five years which I had recieved permission for to keep from animal control. These are emotional support animals for my documented PTSD. Animal control/Olive Branch Police Department has now stated that the laws have changed and I am no longer in compliance with the a new law that states that I need 1 acre of land to keep potbelly pigs, I own a half acre. I have until December 14 to evict my fur babies from my property or they will be taken from me and most likely "humanely" murdered for no crime other than being a pig. I currently have an appointment with the Mayor on December 11th to protest this unfair treatment by animal control and OBPD. I am not asking to keep unlimited potbellys, I am only asking to be able to keep the two I have already had until they depart naturally. My goal is that Kevin and Zoey be grandfathered in and not be prosecuted."
