Woman files charges over pigâ€™s weight
Michelle Schmitz, potbellied pig owner from Winona
Minnesota, has announced that she is to files charges against the sitter of her
pig Alaina Templeton who allowed her to get fat.
Alaina weighed 50 pounds in February when Schmitz 22 went into sick leave to
recover from ankle surgery.
Jeff Mueller, investigator from the Winona County Sheriff's Department,
commented that no charges had as yet been brought against the sitter.
Alaina, according to Schmitz, had been bottle-fed and kept on a diet to
remain 50 pounds. The sitter did not return Schmitzâ€™s calls when she returned to
pick-up the pig.
Alaina was found with breathing difficulties on Saturday and is now
recovering from a neck infection and other wounds.
Schmitz is said to be devastated. "This pig is my life", she said.
