BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - An urban farmer in Bridgeport is advertising chickens, donkeys and pigs on Craigslist as he faces pressure to end his operation.

The Connecticut Post reports (https://bit.ly/1gPtA2a ) that Christopher Toole is offering three donkeys for $300 each and says they are a family and must stay together. Five pigs run for between $120 and $150 apiece as are his 16 goats.

Fifty chickens cost $10 a hen and roosters are $20.

Toole was ordered to unload his animals at the end of January. His Craigslist ad says he’s agreed to sell remaining animals to an unidentified rescue group on Monday, with Sunday the last day they’ll be available to others.

A Department of Agriculture spokesman said Friday the agency intends to follow Toole to make sure he shuts his urban menagerie.
