St. Pete council set to discuss urban farming

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — A miniature goat and sheep are happily keeping one St. Petersburg couple's lawn nicely trimmed — but the city council isn't so sure that the animals should be within city limits.

The Tampa Bay Times ( reports that the city council next month will hold a discussion about urban farming, partly because of Shelby, a miniature Shetland sheep, and Gabby, a Nigerian dwarf goat.

Shelby and Gabby are owned by Winston Fiore and his girlfriend Rachel Auer. A city inspector issued the couple a violation recently because the city has an ordinance against livestock. The inspector said Shelby and Gabby must go but the couple is fighting the ruling.
