Guam - Early this afternoon Guam Environmental Protection Agency inspectors finally met with the owner of what appears to be an illegal piggery.

According to Guam EPA acting administrator Walter Leon Guerrero, inspectors are working to finalize the inspection report to see if a notice of violation is warranted.

As we first brought you the story on Wednesday, neighbors have been making a stink about the foul odor coming from the home just behind the Mangilao Payless Supermarkets.

Although Public Health inspectors couldn't meet with the property owner yesterday, they did see pigs on site and raised concerns about standing water.

We should note, Guam law restricts the possession of pigs, cattle, sheep, horses, goats, and carabao to properties zoned agricultural.
