City council considers ban on barnyard pets


BURLINGTON HAS LONG BEEN KNOWN FOR ITS APPRECIATION OF DIVERSITY. THAT APPLIES TO PEOPLE AND EVEN PETS. SO IT SHOULD COME AS NO SURPRISE THAT A LITTLE PIG NAMED PORK CHOP IS A POPULAR CRITTER IN HIS QUEEN CITY DIGS. BUT NOW BURLINGTON IS CONSIDERING CHANGES TO ITS PET LAWS, CHANGES THAT COULD SPELL THE BANISHMENT OF THE LITTLE BOAR. WPTZ’S RACHEL KARCZ HAS OUR STORY. FOR THE MOST PART RYAN IN GENE OR ARE YOUR AVERAGE PET OWNERS. SHE WILL FEED HIM BEFORE SHE GOES TO WORK AND GIVES HIM A WALL. I GET HOME AND THEN I GIVE HIM HIS SECOND WALK OF THE DAY. THEIR PET IS A PICK NAMED PORK CHOP. THEY BOUGHT HIM FROM FLORIDA A FEW MONTHS AGO. WE FOUND A PIG FARM AND ONE THING LED TO ANOTHER AND WE HAVE A PIG. HE IS A LITTLE CELEBRITY IN HIS NEIGHBORHOOD. WE ALWAYS HAVE TO TALK TO PORK CHOP, TONS OF PICTURES. RIGHT NOW THE ANIMALS ARE ALLOWED IN THE CITY BUT THAT COULD CHANGE. THE CITY COUNCIL HAS A PROPOSAL TO BAN UNUSUAL ANIMALS FROM LIVING WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS. ONE OF THOSE ANIMALS WOULD EITHER PAY GOING FOR SHOCK — WOULD BE PIGS. WE WOULD PROBABLY LEAVE. JUST BECAUSE WE LOVE HIM. HE IS PART OF THE FAMILY. TAKES LIKE PORK CHOP SHOULD NOT GET TOO WORRIED YET. THE PLAN US IN THE EARLY STAGES AND COULD CHANGE. FOR NOW HE WILL KEEP ON LIVING THE GOOD LIFE. IS GOING TO STAY PINK AND BE A PIG. AT THIS POINT THERE HAS NOT BEEN ANY MOVEMENT ON THE PROPOSAL TO BAN PIGS.
