Woman with 10 pet mini pigs blasted by neighbours for ‘smelly pigsty’ apartment

An animal lover has shown off her pet pigs in adorable video where she feeds and bathes them — but neighbours claim her home is now a stinking pigsty.

Ksenya Remizova, a zoo psychologist, adopted nine piglets and a large 100lb pig in 2013 and has been training them in her apartment in Balashikha, Russia, ever since.

In the clip, Ksenya can be seen crooning at her beloved pigs as one of them sits on her lap and begs for a snack.

The pig grunts with excitement as she pops treats into its mouth.

In the corner of the shot, a blonde-coloured pig can be seen wagging its curly tail.

However, Ksenya’s disgruntled neighbours are not taken in by the animal’s charms and allege there is a nasty stink coming from Ksenia's flat.

One resident told local media: "We cannot stand the noise and stench coming from the apartment.

“It also smells horrible on the stairwell, especially in the summer."

Ksenya denied the claims and said pigs are exceptionally clean and can’t make a mess when she exercises them outside because she keeps them on a lead.

She said: "They don't have sweat glands which is why they can't smell bad.

“I’m also looking after the flat's cleanliness. My pigs are always walked on a lead."

Ksenya has displayed their smarts in “pig shows” and has previously spoken out about their merits as pets.

She told Euro News: ”They are really easy to train, they learn new tricks in a few minutes, they are not afraid and do not get irritated.

“If they do not like something, they just show their dissatisfaction, they are very nice animals and they have many positive emotions."

Unfortunately for Ksenya, her neighbours might take her to court over the allegations.

Moscow Oblast official Tatyana Ivanova said: "Residents should call the local authorities and file a complaint about the violation of building rules and regulations, or just go straight to court."

Neighbours have already filed a complaint, according to local media.

If found guilty of committing an offence Ksenia could be fined by the authorities.
