CAPE CORAL, Fla- A pig predicament is going before the Cape Coral City Council today. It's against the law in Cape Coral to have a Potbellied Pig as a pet so a number of owners are petitioning council to change the rules.
The current ordinance prohibits keeping livestock in a residential setting. Farm animals are defined as bovine, equine or swine. Potbellied Pig owner James Tobol says of his pet, "she's one of us. I would never give her up unless I was forced to. I hope it doesn't come to that."
Cape Coral has voted to grandfather in all pot-bellied pigs if their owners can prove they were in Cape coral before the ordinance was passed in 2008.
