[VIDEO] Campaign Underway to Save Wilbur, the Staten Island Pet Pig Who May Lose His Family

Last week, the New York Times published an article and accompanying video about the New York's HIdden Network of Pet Pigs. In this follow up video from producer Amanda Steen for the Staten Island Advance, we learn more about the campaign to save Wilbur, one of the pet pigs ordered by the City to move away from his family.

"Wilbur the Pig" has been living with Cristy Matteo in her Staten Island home for the last five years. She considers him part of her family, but the city wants to put an end to that.
