please don't get angry at this trhread. this a serious question. I live ina city suburb, still pretty urban though. we do have a liscence in our city that you can keep a vietmese pot belly pig as long as you keep it clean, odor free ,and the city doesn't get complaints from the neighbors. My roots are quite rural, my grandfather was a subsistance pig farmer and an avid smoker. The old out house was converted into the smoke house when they got indoor plumbing in 1960. I want to know if a pig is a pig is a pig. and if I raise the little porker and don't get attached like a pet, if it would be something edible. plus an advantage I see with the pot belly pig is extra bacon, and who doesn't like extra bacon? please don't hate me, all meat comes from somewhere.
