The Keokuk City Council says it needs more information before deciding what type of animal can be considered a pet.
The Keokuk City Council could decide what how to classify certain animals next week.
The idea of re-installing Keokuk’s old rocket slide could gain some momentum in the coming weeks and months.
The Keokuk City Council is finalizing the details for its second urban deer season.
Angelica Finch says even though her family has only owned "Bacon" for a few weeks, he has become part of the family.
"Bacon" is a two-month-old miniature pot-belly pig given to Finch's five-year-old daughter as a birthday present.
Finch says she did not know that pot-belly pigs were prohibited in Keokuk until the animal control officer told her he had received a complaint from a neighbor about "Bacon."
That prompted Finch to ask the Keokuk City Council to change city law to include pot-belly pigs as domestic animals, similar to cats and dogs.
