You've asked a "strange" question and you should expect a little levity.

No need to admonish people.
I originally asked a serious question. These particular animals are at times kept as pets. Many times on TOTV people offer what they think is humor when in fact it is sarcasm. I do know that pigs are kept as pets in large city apartments so I see no reason to term my question as being "strange".

You can't blame people for having a little fun.
There were lots of funny posts, but I LOVE DeanFL's response.
I DID NOT KNOW THE ANSWER AND MANY OTHERS ARE UNSURE. It seems to hang on the definition of these miniature animals. Are they considered to be livestock or domestic animals. It would probably take a court case to make a determination.

A fairly sure way to determine if they are allowed is to call the Compliance Office on Monday morning. Chances are that the answer is NO.

Yes, you could hire an attorney to bring your case to court. Remember, The Villages hires the best lawyers and it ends up costing you a great deal of time and money to still get the same answer.

However, this is America, so play your cards as you like. Best of luck.
