St. Albans' Romeo

Pigs don't fly - but one regularly walks a street in Queens.

One-year-old Romeo belongs to a St. Albans family that keeps the housebroken porker as a pet.


BRINGIN' HOME BACON

Lisa Cummings, 40, grew up on a farm in Trinidad, and husband Joel, 39, wanted to make her feel at home.

Romeo, bought from a Long Island farm, eats three pounds of pellet food a day and is walked four times a day without a leash.

I think he's cute but my two dogs might have something to say about it if I brought one home... hahahaha....

Ohh great, now that the public is aware of the porky pet, the City Council will likely ban it in yet another bid to get attention.

Watch how fast the Queens community rags latch onto this story complete with photos. I hope fotogs Cohen of the Trib, Santucci of the Courier, Kane of the Chronicle, and Cutillo of the Times don't smash their vehicles into each other rushing to be the first to re-photo the pig.

Queens community newspapers: a vomitorium of journalistic regurgitant!

This pig looks like the guy who runs Dennis Gallagher's fundraisers. I'm sure the pig is a more eloquent speaker, though.

I commend the new owner! Their pet pig doesn't pose a hazard. Some politicians, developers, and landlords are the ultimate threat. When will they get banned rather than another one of man's best friend?
