You Can't Do That: Strange Animal Laws

You've got to wonder what prompted lawmakers to come up with these gems:

It is illegal to...

...herd more than 2000 sheep down Hollywood Blvd. at one time.

(Must've been passed after disaster struck during the filming of a Mel Brooks movie)

...allow cats to run loose without a tail light.

(Might be easier just to keep your cat indoors)

...take a lion to the movies in Baltimore.

(I suppose they came up with this one after MGM's early attempts at reality TV backfired) give lighted cigars to pets in Zion, Illinois

(I completely agree--not only is smoking bad for 'em, pets are hopeless when it comes to using ashtrays) educate dogs in Hartford.

(Makes sense--most of them are smarter than us already) give alcohol to a moose in Fairbanks.

(Takes the sport out of hunting them, I suppose. Sigh)

...for a farmer to sleep with his livestock in Clawson, Michigan.

(No comment)

...for cats and dogs to have sex without a permit in Ventura, California.

(Perhaps it's lawmakers who should require a permit)

I have to wonder exactly what you have to do, and to whom you have to talk, in order to get a permit for dogs and cats to have sex.

I'm wondering if in the comment above nucleartoast left off a word: " order for cats and dogs to have sex [together].

In 1969, Pierre Elliot Trudeau, a Canadian Prime Minister, said, "There's no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation." Although he was talking about something else entirely, I think it applies here too: The state has no business in the doghouses and kitty litters of the nation. ;)

Perhaps the permits were Ventura's way of cleaning up the red (tail) light district.

" order for cats and dogs to have sex [together].

Oh, that's a whole different kettle of fish.
