HENDERSON CO., KY (WFIE) -

We have an update on the unusual pig problem at the Henderson Humane Society.

Last week, the shelter reported having six pigs.

Animal Control Officers said a recent trend of micro pigs as pets is to blame. 

People get the animals thinking they'll stay the size of a puppy, but eventually, they grow to be hundreds of pounds.

Director Angela Hagedorn told us all six pigs have been adopted by a pig sanctuary in Tennessee.
