Rhode island is the smallest state in the U.S., and its ridiculous animal laws reflect that. The bad news? We don't have much to poke fun at this week. The good news? We have a whole list of other states you can peruse over your morning coffee if this isn't enough for you.
• In Scituate, it is illegal to keep a flock of chickens in your motorhome if you live in a trailer park. A flock of pigeons is preferable. Or if you must keep chickens, throw them in your neighbor's motorhome. That also provides entertainment for the whole park, so it's a win-win.
• Riding a horse over any public highway for the purpose of racing or testing the speed of the horse is illegal. A real-life game of Frogger. Fantastic.
We'll look forward to seeing you again next week when we look at South Carolina!
