Boy with Autism Fights to Keep Therapeutic Pet Pg

Lisa Pia says her autistic 8-year-old son, Anthony, was transformed last year at the sight of a potbellied pig.
"It was, 'Oh, Mommy!' ‘Look, Mommy!’ He went wild," remembers Pia, who was so struck by her little boy's reaction to the pig during a visit to a ranch 45 minutes from the family's home in Fayetteville, N.C., that they adopted her. But for the past month, the pig — christened Loopey — has been back at the ranch while the family fights an ordinance that prohibits keeping pigs in the city.
