Florence Gruber of Paulsboro said Tuesday she plans to appeal the order, WCAU-TV, Philadelphia, reported. In the meantime, she is scrambling to find new homes for the little porkers before she has to start paying fines.
A municipal judge ruled Monday Gruber was in violation of a 1937 law banning the keeping of pigs in Paulsboro.
"We're like but these pigs didn't exist in 1937, and he said a pig is a pig," Gruber said.
Gruber started a couple of years ago with two of the miniature pigs. She acquired others, and the pigs have mated and multiplied.
Some of her neighbors complain the pigs have created a stench that makes outside events almost impossible. But at least one said she likes Gruber's pigs so much she wants one of her own.
Gruber admits she went a bit overboard: "Maybe five or six pigs but not 30."
