Crazy Animal Laws

November 9, 2010

There’s a reporter from the San Francisco Cronicle that decided to dig for the strangest, craziest animal laws he could find and well, he found some wacky ones. Check out this list:

In Ohio and Oklahoma, it’s against state law to get a fish drunk. For those living in the Buckeye State, it is also illegal to hunt for whales on Sunday.

California law prohibits animals from mating publicly within 1,500 feet of a pub, school or place of worship.

In San Francisco, it’s illegal to pile horse manure more than six feet high on a street corner.

In Wilbur, Washington, it is illegal to ride an ugly horse. (I searched for a list of criteria, but came up empty handed.)

The town of Fairbanks, Alaska forbids anyone from serving alcoholic beverages to a moose.

In L.A., it is considered unlawful to lick a toad. (I guess some people will do anything to get high. Kissing toads, however, is still allowed.)

In Sheridan, Wyoming, a policeman can bite a barking dog, in order to quiet him.

When you pass a cow in Pine Island, Minnesota it is illegal not to tip your hat.

In Atlanta it’s illegal to tie a giraffe to a telephone pole or lamp post.

In Lawrence, Kansas, it is forbidden for anyone to carry bees in their hat while traveling on city streets.

If you should find yourself in Canton, Mississippi, know that is against the law to kill a squirrel with a gun while in a courtroom.

In North Carolina it is illegal to use elephants to plow cotton fields.

Arizona law prohibits a donkey from taking a snooze in a bathtub.

In Arizona, it is illegal for donkeys to sleep in bathtubs.

In Florida, if an elephant is left tied to an parking meter, the parking fee has to be paid, just as it would be for a vehicle. (I suppose this also means that your elephant will be ticketed in the event that the meter expires.)

Also in Florida, it is illegal to have sexual relations with a porcupine. (Who but only the most extreme masochist would want to?)

If you happen to be visiting the city of Miami, please be aware that imitating an animal is a no-no.

In Minnesota, you may not cross state lines with a duck on top of your head.

If you have a habit of leaving your sheep in the cab of your truck without a chaperon, it’s best to steer clear of Montana where this is a ticketable offense.

In Tennessee, it is illegal shoot any game other than whales from a moving automobile.

Baltimore law declares it illegal to take a lion to the movies.

Heard a weird one? Let us know…

First the face on mars, then the pyramids…now this monolith. Is it possible that there used to be an ancient civilization on Mars? Is it possible that NASA already knows the answer? Could this be the final straw for disclosure…?

I Found A New Job!

January 13, 2009

reef2

The description reads:

The successful applicant “will be expected to stroll the white sands, snorkel the reef, take care of “a few minor tasks” — and report to a global audience via weekly blogs, photo diaries and video updates.”

Hey, I can do that!

And continues on, “They’ll also have to talk to media from time to time about what they’re doing so they can’t be too shy and they’ll have to love the sea, the sun, the outdoors.”

Man, this is perfect for me! I’m a “shoe in”…or should that be a “flip-flop in”…

Here are the details:
