LA PORTE, Texas – A woman turned herself into police Wednesday because she refuses to give up her pet pig.

Shawnda Cash was cited by the city last year and ordered to pay a fine for keeping the pig on less than an acre of land.

After she couldn't afford to pay the fine and then missed a court date, a warrant was issued and she decided to just turn herself in rather than give up her pet.

"I want to try and change the ordinance or amend it,” Cash said. “My lawyer also mentioned that the law isn't even for pigs. It's for hogs. So I don't even know if everything I'm going through is really for anything I've done wrong."

Cash said that for now she just wanted to pay the fine, serve a couple of days in jail, and to put the whole thing behind her.
