A New Castle woman is fighting to keep her pet pig after her home owners association said the pig has to go.

Charlie the Vietnamese pot-bellied pig weighs over 200 pounds and lives with Cheryl Pipkin.

Two years ago, the pig was given as gift to Cheryl's granddaughter who lives in the home.

Pipkin says she's allergic to fur and a pig is the only pet she can have.

Recently, Pipkin got a letter from the Mallard Point Maintenance Corporation saying that the pig was in violation to the development's rules, which prohibits having farm animals.

Action News left a message for Mallard Point Maintenance Corporation but has not received a call back.
