The American laws that are the wackiest in the world!December 31st, 2008 - 3:53 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Dec 31 (ANI): While most states and countries come up with laws that are practical, America on the other hand has some that can claim to be the wackiest in the world.
Fox News reveals some of the laws that still remain on the books across the country:
According to a law passed in Billings, Mont., it is illegal for anyone to sell, harbor or give away rats as pets or toys for any purpose other than to feed snakes or birds of prey. Scientists, however, can keep lab rats.
In Michigan, it is legal to kill a dog for attacking chickens, livestock or people, but you can”t snuff the pooch in a high altitude decompression chamber or by electrocution.
As per a law in Kentucky, it is illegal to sell, exchange, offer to sell or exchange, display, or possess living baby chicks, ducklings, or other fowl or rabbits that have been dyed or coloured.
It is also illegal to dye or colour baby chicks, ducklings, fowl or rabbits. And unless they are at least two months old, the aforementioned animals must be sold in batches of six.
At shooting ranges in Massachusetts, it is illegal to shoot at targets depicting a human — whether as a figure, effigy or a silhouette — unless you”re a public safety officer performing official duties.
In Alabama it is against the law to exploit a bear by promoting, engaging in or being employed at a bear wrestling match, or by subjecting a bear to surgical alteration of any kind, including, but not limited to, declawing, tooth removal and severing tendons. (ANI)
