ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) – Looie the pet potbellied pig has gotten a reprieve — for now. The St. Cloud City Council has decided to hold off on whether a family has to give up Looie.

City law says pigs like Looie are banned in residential areas of St. Cloud, but Cindy Boettcher and her family contend that Looie is fully domesticated and not a safety hazard — not to mention a member of the family.

KNSI-AM reports the dust-up started after Looie busted out of his pen and was found rummaging through the neighborhood twice in the past year.

The council is sending the issue back to city staff.
