Brockton seizes, bans resident’s wandering pet pig
In the year Porkchop, a pot-bellied pig, has called Brockton home, he has been aprehended five times for being at large in the neighborhood, said Megan Hanrahan, Brockton’s animal inspector. Animal control has responded to Porkchop-related issues at least 15 times. Porkchop is harmless, and a nice pig, Hanrahan said, but he shouldn’t be loose and now it has become a safety issue. Now Porkchop is banned from Brockton.
