La Crosse, WI city ordinance 381 : "No person shall within the city of La Crosse molest, injure or in any manner interfere with any squirrel of any kind."

What's interesting with laws like this is that on one hand it's fair enough, but on the other...why is it so oddly specific:confused:


I know that in a town in Alaska it's illegal for moose to walk on sidewalks!

(also, a lot of these are animal related)
 
The code states that anyone throwing snowballs, sticks, stones or “other missiles” at people or windows or other forms of property in order to injure, destroy, frighten, or annoy is guilty of a misdemeanor. [Provo, UT]
Guess I know what I’m doing next winter :V

I'm pretty sure this is false. However a friend from Singapore told me that possessing certain quantities of drugs in Singapore is a 'mandatory death sentence'- and you are considered guilty 'until the contrary is proved' that the drugs are yours- if you for example own a key to a building that turns out to have drugs inside.

So they do have some horrifying laws.

Obviously the non-sexual definition of molest, but they don't allowing hunting/trapping in city limits or are squirrels just protected from some stupid reason?

This 'law' is a misprint in an edition of the King James bible. Regrettably most of them were burned!

I got an old friend who lives in Colorado who told me there's a law that you cannot kill a dog in a high-altitude depressurization tank?
Not entirely sure that's true, but jesus what idiot caused them to make that law if it is?

While not technically a law, the EPA regulations established in 2009 for portable fuel containers are probably the most epically stupid regulation I have ever seen.

Anybody who has tried to use a newer plastic gas can knows what I'm talking about. I had to spend 50 bucks to get an OSHA approved safety container, which doesn't have to comply with their infuriating group-think miscarriage of a "safety" spout that requires three hands to operate, inevitably breaks, and splashes gas all over the place because the regulation doesn't allow for a vent anymore. It has been known for millennia that if you pour a liquid out of a container, air has to come in. Supposedly this is to reduce emissions, but the gas that splashes onto the ground and all over a hot engine as well as the, I'm sure, countless broken spouts contribute far more to emissions than the much simpler previous method of just putting a cap on it.

In Tennessee, it is illegal to carry a skunk over the state line.
It is also illegal to lasso fish.
It IS legal, however to shoot whales from your car window.
