HOUSTON Bad news for Wilbur the pot-bellied pig.

A Spring family fighting to keep their pet pig says their HOA isn t budging on its decision to give the animal the boot.

The Sardo family, who lives in The Thicket subdivision, started a petition to keep their 60-pound, 8-month-old pet after their HOA said he violated deed restrictions concerning livestock.

At a homeowner s association meeting last week, Missy Sardo said she was told if she had 51 percent of the 250 homeowners in The Thicket community sign a petition agreeing to allow the pig, they could change the deed restrictions.

The Sardos went right into action, circulating a petition and starting a Facebook page for Wilbur in a bid to keep him.

But now, Missy Sardo says her HOA has sent her a second letter, saying the petition won t help, and Wilbur has to go.
