Welcome to lovely South Carolina where the tea is sweet and the dogs are barkin'. Let's take a look at some of their ridiculous animal laws.
• In Hilton Head, it is illegal to shine a flashlight on a sea turtle. If you can find a sea turtle at night, more power to you.
• In Myrtle Beach, dogs may not be on the beach during the summer months during the daytime or the owner may be arrested. Oh, the dog days of summer!
• In Fountain Inn, horses are to wear pants at all times. Um. Okay. Who makes horse pants? And how the hell do you get them on the horse?
• In Clemson, bitches in heat shall be confined. It's always the woman's fault, isn't it?
• When approaching a four-way or blind intersection in a non-horse driven vehicle, you must stop 100 feet from the intersection and discharge a firearm into the air to warn horse traffic. Because a gunshot is much less startling than a car engine.
• Railroad companies may be held liable in some instances for scaring horses. Perhaps they should try the gunshot technique.
• Horses may not be kept in bathtubs. What is it with keeping animals in bath tubs?
• One needs a permit to paint or sculpt with turkey feathers. But eating the turkey is a-okay...no questions asked.
• It is unlawful to buy or sell an electric eel. Oh, zap!
• Fishing with dynamite is a crime. So is fishing with a yo-yo. There's this cool thing called a fishing pole. Check it out.
• It is a crime to possess a walking catfish. I didn't know such an animal existed! Check it out:
Tune in next week when we check out South Dakota.
