UPDATE ANIMAL ORDINANCE TO ALLOW MINI PIG TO LIVE INSIDE COMMUNITY LIMITS WITH FAMILY

This petition had 1,300 supporters


MINI PIGS ARE INCREASING IN POPULARITY, MORE FAMILIES WANT THESE AS PETS, AND THE ORDINANCE HAS BLANKET PROHIBITION AGAINST "LIVESTOCK/SWINE". 

SAYING ALL SWINE ARE LIVESTOCK AND THE SAME IS LIKE SAYING POODLES AND GREAT DANES ARE THE SAME BECAUSE THEY ARE IN CANINE CATEGORY

HE LIVES INDOORS. HE HAS A FENCED AREA FOR OUDOOR PLAY WITHIN A LARGER, LOCKED, SIX FOOT PERIMETER PRIVACY FENCE. 

THIS PIG WAS BRED ONLY AS PET, ADOPTED AT 6WKS AND ONLY KNOWS INDOOR FAMILY LIFE WITH CHILDREN. TO RE-HOME HIM TO A FARM OR SANCTUARY WOULD BE SHOCKING TO HIS SYSTEM AND CRUEL 

BENJAMIN PIG IS LOVED BY HIS CHILDREN EOPLE. HIS BOY PEOPLE HAS ANXIETY ISSUES, AND THE BOYS DOCTOR WROTE A LETTER TO THE MAYOR AND COUNCIL ADVISING THE REMOVAL OF PIG WOULD CAUSE UNDUE ANXIETY IN THE BOY.

BENJAMIN HAS HIS SHOTS. ALL OF THEM. 

RABIES IN PIGS IS EXCEEDINGLY RARE. THE CITIES FEAR OF QUARANTINE ISSUES IS SO FAR REMOVED FROM STATISTICAL REALITY, IT BORDERS ON ABSURD.

CITY IS SEARCHING FOR THE NO, NOT FINDING A SOLUTION.

THERE HAS NOT BEEN ONE SINGLE COMPLAINT ABOUT THIS ANIMAL. PERIOD. NOT ONE.

HE IS FAMILY. HE IS AS MUCH FAMILY AS ANY DOG OR CAT OR BUNNY OR GUINEA PIG. HES A PART OF OUR FAMILY. WE LOVE HIM AND HE CAUSES NO HARM.
