SAPULPA, Okla. – Pets are often considered members of the family, but one Oklahoma family says a city ordinance puts one of their family members at risk.

Like a lot of family pets, Raisin takes baths, does tricks, loves treats and is even an Instagram sensation.

However, this little guy is a miniature pig and a city ordinance in the City of Sapulpa means that he isn’t welcome there.

According to FOX 23, the ordinance bans swine within the city limits.

The family says the city has been supportiveĀ in the past, but they are hoping that city leaders will consider changing the ordinance.

So far, 100,000 supporters have signed a petition on Change.org to change the ordinance.
