OKLAHOMA CITY -

A metro family now has hope in their fight to keep a 220 pound pet pig.

A neighbor raised a stink about the pig named "Wilbur." Turns out, the city of Oklahoma City said the pig has to go.

We call it the Oklahoma standard. Karen Padilla was brought to tears when the city told her she had to remove her beloved 220 pound pig. But Wednesday morning, strangers are giving Wilbur his own Miracle web.

Padilla says Wilber is a certified "emotional support" animal. The city says pet laws trump that since Padilla is on less than one acre of land. An appeal would cost $1,400.

But now, Padilla won't have to pay it. Someone donated $1,400 on Padilla's GoFundMe account. This donation will give this potty trained, micro-chipped pig a reprieve.
