KALAMAZOO, Mich. (CBS) — A man in Michigan is fighting to keep his pet pot-bellied pig.
Joshua Garcia of Kalamazoo adopted “Bacon” about a year ago.
The 100-pound pig is house broken and litter trained.
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.
Kalamazoo commissioners will hear his case this week.
The city’s vice mayor is supporting Garcia keeping Bacon.
