SUBURBAN LAKE WORTH, Fla. – A pet or a problem? A legal battle is brewing over a Palm Beach County family’s choice of pet.  The family’s homeowner’s association is cracking down on a pot-bellied pig named ‘Wilbur’. Wilbur may not seem too controversial. But in the suburban Lake Worth community of Cypress Woods, he is. The one year old, 65 lb. pot-bellied pig is at the center of a brewing legal battle between his owners and their homeowner’s association.”I didn’t know it was a problem until we got a violation letter,” said Rori Halpern, Wilber’s owner. “I didn’t want this to happen. I didn’t want to break any rules,” she said. Halpern said her HOA is trying to force Wilbur out. “I will fight, fight, fight with everything I have to keep this animal here.” She’s fighting so hard, she said, because of what Wilbur means to her two kids. Documents indicate that both have been previously diagnosed with ADHD and one of them with Asperger Syndrome. Halpern has even had Wilbur trained and registered in a Animal Assisted Therapy program at the Humane Society of Broward County.  Read more:
