EAST RIDGE, TN. (Times Free Press) -- Oreo the pygmy goat can stay in his East Ridge home -- for now.

East Ridge City Council members voted to table a proposed law that would permanently allow Oreo -- and other nontraditional pets -- to live within the city limits.

The members will reconsider the issue at the next City Council meeting. In the meantime, owner Jeffery Viar will be allowed to keep his family's pet goat.

"I'm disappointed that they didn't amend him in," he said. "But I'm grateful for my children that he can at least stay with our family for two more weeks."
