Therapy Pigs Raising Stress Levels in Olive Branch


OLIVE BRANCH, MS (Ben Caxton) — A fight over livestock is sizzling in Olive Branch about whether pigs can be pets. Kevin Bacon and Zoe are they the prized possessions of Marine Corps veteran Tony Shelley who served two tours in Iraq. He was diagnosed with PTSD and the pigs were certified as therapy animals. A neighbor called authorities after seeing rats in their house and the city cited Shelley for violating an ordinance that livestock must be kept on at least one acre of land. A hearing is scheduled for January 8th.
