SOUTHWEST RANCHES, Fla. – Town officials have ordered a man to get rid of his 300-pound pet pig, but the owner says he'd rather leave town than give up the animal.
Rob Falk of Southwest Ranches has a Yorkshire pig named Strawberry, and council members cited Falk's landlord for a code violation in July. Last week, officials gave Falk 30 days to remove Strawberry from the home, saying that the town allows only one Vietnamese pot bellied pig per household.
Officials are also worried that the pig will get bigger and grow large tusks.
Falk says the family will move because "the pig is like one of our children."
