The former wife of an heir to the Walgreen drugstore fortune says she is moving out of her Lake Forest mansion, and taking her three Vietnamese potbellied pigs with her. The three pigs, Pinky, Piggy and Cooper, weigh about 200 pounds apiece and were the objects of a lawsuit filed last year by a neighbor couple who complained that they were noisy, smelly and potentially dangerous.

Their owner, Estelle Gonzales Walgreen, said Wednesday she plans to move out of the $3.3 million mansion because of financial problems. She bought the mansion after her 2006 divorce from Charles R. Walgreen, but said she recently defaulted on the mortgage loan after her manufacturing business in Wisconsin went bankrupt.
