Out of the ordinary: Therapy pig sparks legal fight

Hoping to help their son, Kason Ray, 8, cope with the emotional problems that result from Down’s syndrome, his parents got him a therapy pet. Because his father and older brother are severely allergic, they couldn’t have any animals that could set off a reaction. After lots of research, the Coral Springs, Fla., family settled on a Juliana pig to help their son, who has significant developmental and speech delays, and has the mental age of a 4-year-old.
