UDPATE: Board Rules Family's Pet Pig Is Livestock

Oscar's owner says she's not giving up the fight.

  • The Delta Twp. Zoning Board of Appeals voted Tuesday night to uphold a decision that pigs are livestock, not pets.

  • The Schuiling family has been fighting to keep their pet pot-bellied pig, Oscar. In March, Delta Twp. sent the family a letter saying Oscar was considered livestock and in violation of a zoning ordinance.

  • Nicole Schuiling told us on Tuesday she will submit a request for the township to pass a new ordinance with new definitions of livestock and pets.

  • We will keep you updated.
