More Funny Animal Laws


Yesterday I posted some funny animal laws that I saw on Petcentric.com.  Here are some crazy ones today:

Out on the Town

Chicago, IL
You may not take a French Poodle to the opera (no matter how well quaffed!).  (lol, my French poodle hates the opera anyways ha!)

Baltimore, MD
It’s illegal to take a lion to the movies.   (You know this had to have happened for this law to be there. I wish I had been there that day)

Juneau, Alaska
Animals are not allowed to enter barbershops for the practice of hairdressing.

Hartford, CT
It is illegal to educate dogs.     (What? Dogs deserve education too!)

Wallace, ID
No person is allowed to sleep in a dog kennel.    (never dreamed of it myself….kinda small)

Civility

Oklahoma
People who make “ugly faces” at dogs may be fined and/or jailed.

International Falls, MN
Cats are forbidden from chasing dogs up telephone poles.     (I used to have a cat who could probably do this. All the dogs were scared of him except his mama dog who nursed him as an adandoned kitten. Rest well in cat heaven Rambo)

Reggio Emilia
If your pets share a meal, they must be given equal portions, or the owner will be fined up to €324 ($424).      (If kids have to share, why not pets?)

Miami, FL
It is forbidden to imitate an animal.     

I guess my friend would get jailed. He makes this expression all the time

Honolulu, HI
Within the limits of any public park, it is unlawful to annoy the birds.

Norfolk, VA
Spitting on a seagull is not tolerated.    (How many times did this happen before they made it a law?)

Reed City, MI
If you own a cat, you may not have a pet bird. There’s a $25 fine for the offense.

Virginia
Dogcatchers are prohibited from bothering cats while looking for wayward dogs.

Alabama
It’s against the law to teach a bear to wrestle.    (and I live in Alabama  *sigh*)

Leahy, WA
You may not blow your nose outdoors, as it may scare a horse and cause it to panic.

Ft. Thomas, KY
Dogs may not molest cars.

Belvedere, CA
City Council order: “No dog shall be in a public place without its master on a leash.”

Connecticut
Any dogs bearing tattoos must be reported to police.         (new show on TLC, “Mad Dogs’s Tattoo Parlor – A No Man’s Land of Tattooing”)

Get a Room
Stop that canoodling!

Ventura County, CA
Cats and dogs are not allowed to mate without a permit.

California
Animals must not be allowed to mate publicly within 500 yards of a tavern, school, or place of worship.

New Castle, DE
Couples are not allowed to make out, or even hold hands, while walking a dog on a leash.

Law Enforcement

Palding, OH
A police officer may bite a dog to quiet him.    (hahaha, I would like to see that)

Denver, CO
The dogcatcher must notify dogs of impounding by posting, for three consecutive days, a notice on a tree in the city park and along a public road running through said park.     (I guess the dogs read the signs and find other places to hang out)
