Some Oakland City residents might have to get rid of their uncommon family pets because officials have dug up an old ordinance banning the animals.
Many residents in Oakland City attended a city council meeting Tuesday night because officials say there is a ban on farm animals within the city limits.
Those residents wanted to see the law prohibiting such animals, and officials couldn't produce it. But on Wednesday morning, those officials went digging deep into the files to stick by a law that was written back in the 50s.
Oakland City officials say farm animals belong out in a pasture and not in someone's backyard.
