Pigs as Pets Banned in Georgetown

Pigs as Pets Banned in Georgetown

City leaders ban livestock as companion animals within the city limits.
Georgetown has passed an ordinance banning residents from having pigs as pets.

The ban makes it illegal to have any kind of livestock as a  pet within city limits.

Supporters say they're concerned about health risks and bad odors.

Those against the ban say the animals are just as domesticated as a dog or cat.

The city ordinance states that if someone is found in possession of livestock, they have ten days to remove the animal.

If the animal is not removed in those ten days the city will impound the animal and charge the owner a twenty dollar fine.
