TRUMANN, Ark. (AP) - A committee examining whether a Trumann woman can keep a pot-bellied pig as an emotional support animal says the city council should decide the issue.

Matt Miller says the pig, Gordy, helps with his wife’s health issues. The Jonesboro Sun reported Monday that a special committee has recommended that a swine and livestock ban remain in place, but that the council can decide whether a waiver is warranted.

The Miller household has had the pig about two years. Miller says he cannot afford to move from Trumann if the city council makes Gordy leave.

Council member Debbie Cook says Gordy’s fate will likely come up at the city council’s meeting Nov. 14.
