However, a neighbor didn’t approved and reported Bacon to authorities.

It turned out Garcia didn’t have the required permit.

“Bacon is family. If we would have to get rid of him, I know it’s only been a year, but he’s been there. He’s just Bacon,” said Garcia.

Faced with losing Bacon, Garcia took action as he applied for a special permit.

  1. I don’t see anything wrong with having pot bellied pig as house pet since they’re known to be very clean. Look at George Clooney who had several pot beliied pigs and I don’t see anybody complain. People need to mind their own business and stop causing problem for their neighbor.
