Animal Control
Bylaw back in
council chambers
Times Associated Editor
Prestigious pastor
It was a case of déjà vu for some council members
as the Animal Control Bylaw once again landed on
the town’s agenda with a request to prompt a new,
Page 17 more inclusive regulation that demonstrates mod-
ern standards and practices.
The bylaw raised some concerns in 2014, when a
local family asked to allow their Vietnamese pot-bel-
lied pig, Chuckles, within town limits to ease their
daughter’s night terrors.
Following much debate about a solution best
suited for the Town of Strathmore, the bylaw was
amended with special conditions attached to allow
for Chuckles – who by then was a registered emo-
Zone battle tional support animal with the National Service Ani-
mal Registry (NSAR) – to return home. However, the
Animal Control Bylaw still prohibits the use of fowl,
bovine, equine, poultry and porcine as pets.
These restrictions resulted in Strathmore resident
Paul Sonsteby appealing to council on March 7 for
the sanction of owning miniature pigs as pets with-
in the town.
“I grew up on a farm in a household with lots of
pets, dogs and cats, and I married a woman who

Bylaw update
Continued from Page 1

“In doing the research we’ve discovered

that the American Miniature Pig Associ-
ation, which has breeders all across the
United States and three in Canada, has very
strict regulations on miniature pigs,” Son-
steby said. “The AMPA actually has a long
list of regulations they need potential own-
ers to meet. It’s not just a case of you pay
your deposit and you’re getting these ani-

mals. They’re fairly strict.”

2017 INVEN T O R Y C LE A R He added that under AMPA, the animals

are spayed or neutered, dewormed, vet ap-
proved and micro-chipped.
So far, he has not been able to secure a
veterinarian in Strathmore who will treat a

miniature pig. But he has educated himself
on the animal’s rooting behaviour, and said
he’s aware if the pigs are taken to the dog
park they may become subject to bullying
by dogs. Council was also told that most
of the regulations that dog owners are re-
quired to adhere to in Strathmore can be
followed as a pig owner.
