Dave...help me out if you can...I thought I read or saw on the news a few years back.... that some one in NYS was arrested for animal abuse ...because the pet pot belly pig they had was deemed morbidly obese...someone turned them in to animal control and they ended up getting fined and the pig was taken away...Good ole NY.....lol  

I'm sorry...when I worked in the pet industry ...the shop owner sold them....I discouraged ppl from buying...on the down lo....A pig is a pig ...and all pig manure smells the same and all pigs rut....one woman wouldn't listen...I told her if she kept the pig in her kitchen...it would find the first weak spot in the linoleum and rut it up...two days later she came in for a refund...that morning she found her kitchen floor in pieces and manure every where....I said well...that's why I told you absolutely no refunds...want to see the tape? @--0--0100... ##$%#15....I did a lot of head shaking  back then @--0--0105

sure sounds like something NYS and PETA would try, An overweight Pig @--0--0117. They are a funny looking aminal but no reason a potbelly pig should taste any differant from other pork

Ten of us went on a four day overnight camping trip - everything you needed has to be walked up the mountain about three miles.  I suggested we walk up a pot belly pig - one way trip for the pig.  By buddies poo-pooed the idea.
