The Morning Call of Allentown reports Holly Hacker is taking signatures for a petition in support of her spotted Vietnamese potbellied pig, Porkus Maximus, after being cited for violating Whitehall Township's zoning rules.
Hacker says she was cited for having a livestock farm after a zoning officer noticed Porkus at the home.
Hacker says she's appealing to the township zoning board because Porkus isn't livestock raised for sale or profit. He's just a pet.
Mayor Ed Hozza says the board must consider its definition of livestock carefully, because one pig may be a fine pet but five may be too much.
The Morning Call report says a zoning board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday.
