Family fights HOA for their precious pet, Wilbur the pig

HOUSTON—A local homeowner is fighting to keep her precious pet.

Wilbur the pig is beloved by his owner, but not so popular with some neighbors.

"It’s really emotional, because we’ve gotten attached to him," said Wilbur’s owner, Missy Sardo.

The Sardo family’s home is located in the 3400 block of Fir Forest Dr. in The Thicket subdivision.

Last week, they received a letter from their homeowner’s association informing them their 60-pound, 8-month-old pot-bellied pig would have to go. They were given 30 days to find him a new home.
The HOA versus pot bellied pig is a frequently reported story in Privatopia but not as common as HOA versus American flags flapping on flagpoles or HOA versus solar panels.
