I hope you've made it here for the first post on the new site!
Today, we're looking at the ridiculous animal laws still on the books in Colorado.
Cats that meow in the dark will have their tails chopped off. Ouch. Turn on some lights.
In Sterling, cats may not run loose without having been fit with a taillight. Ouch, again. How does one screw in a tail light on a cat, I ask? And where, exactly, does that go? And it is powered, how? And what if said cat has already violated the meowing in the dark law? Man, the felines in CO must be causing some TROUBLE!
It is illegal to bring your horse or pack mule above the ground floor of any building. But you can bring your friend's horse or pack mule. Also, feel free to bring your cow to the 13th floor.
In Denver, it is illegal to mistreat rats. If you can catch them.
In Boulder, it is illegal to permit one's llama to graze on city property. Take that hungry guy to your neighbor's yard and quit using taxpayer dollars to feed your pets!
It is illegal to ride a horse while under the influence. That's okay. I was going to take the pack mule, anyway. He can hold more beer.
In Louisville, residents may not own chickens, but may own up to three turkeys. Happy Thanksgiving!
In Denver, the dog catcher must notify dogs of impounding by posting, for three consecutive days, a notice on a tree in the city park and along public road running through said park. It's official. I'm moving to Colorado! The dogs there can read!
Tune in next week for Connecticut!
