Someone was spotted walking a pig in Toronto but is that legal?
A pig in the city was spotted walking through Kensington Market recently, prompting two burning questions — is that legal? and, should I get a porky pal for myself?
Local photographer Nick Wons captured the little piggy quite literally going to the market with its owner earlier this week.
But it's not the first time a pig has been spotted out and about.
According to the Toronto Municipal Code chapter on animals, pigs are considered a prohibited animal and may be seized by the city.
"We strongly urge people to not keep prohibited animals as pets," said City of Toronto spokesperson Brad Ross.
"[We] appreciate people become attached but their pet could be confiscated."
