I was looking around the ‘net the other day after I got a few ridiculous emails about odd laws that exist. The one that got my interest had to do with pets and all the things they are and aren’t allowed to do in the U.S.A. you take a look at some of the legislation regarding pets and it doesn’t take a lot of common sense to figure out why things are allowed and why some infractions deserve some kind of penalty.
But………….. How about a few of these??
A law in Chicago prohibits anyone from feeding whiskey to dogs.
During the month of April in Massachusetts, all dogs must have their hind legs tied.
In Hartford, Connecticut, it is illegal to educate a dog.
In Sterling, Colorado, it is unlawful to allow a pet cat to run loose without a taillight.
French Lick Springs, Indiana, once passed a law requiring all black cats to wear bells on Friday the 13th.
But my all time favorite…………….
In Zion, Illinois, it is illegal for anyone to give lighted cigars to dogs, cats, and other domesticated animals kept as pets.
How did that possibly come to light?????? I thought maybe a cigar smoking monkey…… Probably !
