Scott Eisen was on hand today as Bobby the Pig made the rounds of the Public Garden and ran into a guy dressed like his worst nightmare.

what a Porcinist comment!

Some communities are actually allowing backyard chickens nowadays. People want a renewable source of local food (eggs) and a few towns are approving their ownership by residents. Go to your town/council meeting, rally your neighbors, and make a difference!

Because the swine flu lobby has worse PR than the chicken flue lobby.

how pet pigs are allowed?...

...they're considered cleaner than dogs by some. I think as long as they're domesticated / indoors they're usually allowed in general. They're breeding them smaller lately, much smaller than the fellow in that pic. My friends who own them also declare them much less of a disease threat than dogs/cats. They hardly need any vaccines the way dogs/cats do.

As for chickens, I did a quick search prior to my first post and found a website containing a list of towns in MA that allow chickens. I didn't llink it because the list included Boston (that can't be right?) so I figured it was inaccurate. But it listed quite a few near suburbs...has to be *partially* right. Rules must var from town to town but there's probably a lot-size requirement, and no roosters allowed as they're the noisy ones.
