• One of my coworkers pointed out this site that lists dumb laws from different states and cities (http://www.dumblaws.com/).

    Here are a few dog related ones just from California:

    State of California:

    Animals are banned from mating publicly within 1,500 feet of a tavern, school, or place of worship.

    Belvedere:

    City Council order reads: “No dog shall be in a public place without its master on a leash.

    Cathedral City:

    One may not bring their dog to school. (We actually did this here in our town where it's not against the law - my daughters class was studying Africa, and the teacher thought it would be cool to bring in a real African breed of dog and talk about how they had adapted to their environment!)

    Glendale:

    One may not take his dog on an elevator with him.

    Los Angeles: (less strict than the rest of the state??)

    It is a crime for dogs to mate within 500 yards of a church.

    Portola:

    One may not allow his or her dog to chase a squirrel in the summer.

    San Jose:

    It is illegal to have more than two cats or dogs.

    Shasta Lake:

    One may not raffle off a dog as a gift in any public place.


  • While those are dumb, the worst is the laws they are trying to pass in so many states with Spay/neuter and breeding restrictions that will put a stop to all hobby breeders trying to improve the breed and raise healthy, happy, well adjusted puppies…


  • @gemurray:

    Portola:

    One may not allow his or her dog to chase a squirrel in the summer.

    So, I guess the winter months are okay for squirrel chasing then?


  • Although, I like the one about not raffling them off…...


  • lol thanks for the link, there are some pretty hilarious Florida laws in there, including it is Illeagal to sell your children! really? lol….
    and
    Men may not be seen publicly in any kind of strapless gown

    No, we probably SHOULD report her because she IS my sister 😉


  • @Quercus:

  • Here's a stupid one from my homestate (Minnesota):
    The land of 10,000 lakes declares mosquitos a public nuisance.


  • But I thought that the mosquito was the state bird! How can they dare declare the state bird a nuisance!
