I live in Northeast Philadelphia and I'm looking to own a potbelly pig as a pet. I've searched endlessly but can't find anything that says owning a potbelly pig is legal nor illegal. Does anyone know anything on this or can direct me to someone who does?

Based upon this and another law I found stating no one may keep a pig for more than 5 days with the intention to slaughter it, the answer is no.
