The City of Castlegar is saving one resident’s bacon…literally.
Council held a special meeting Thursday to reverse an earlier decision that now allows Andrea Lamont to keep her two pot-bellied pigs despite the City’s Animal Control bylaw forbidding the animal in the community.
Mayor Lawrence Chernoff says the best thing to do was reconsider their original decision.
Miss Lamont had requested her pigs be grandfathered in because she says a previous by-law officer told her two years ago the pets were in fact legal.
They will now be grandfathered in but the Animal Control bylaw still forbids pot-bellied pigs.
