Two Zephyrhills homeowners are begging the city to change its code after receiving citations for owning a "mini pig" within city limits. We're all for changing the ordinance to allow pet pigs, but just remember: Mini pigs aren't a thing. That sucker's gonna get big.
Speaking of weird animal-ban stuff, American Airlines has a new service animal policy that will not allow you to bring your emotional support frog, emotional support ferret, emotional support hedgehog, emotional support snake, emotional support spider on its flights, along with a slew of other emotional support animals that make you go "somebody's got that as an emotional support animal?"

And finally, let's just close it out with some more animal-related nonsense: A 37-year-old Apopka man was arrested in the case of that gopher tortoise that was found spray-painted and covered in concrete last month.
