Here’s a round up of some of the stupidest laws relating to animals…

In Kingsville, Texas, it’s illegal for two pigs to have sex in the city’s airport.

In Norfolk, Virginia, it’s illegal for hens to lay eggs before 8 am and after 4 pm. What happens to them if they break this law is unclear…

In New Jersey, ducks aren’t allowed to quack after 10 pm.

In Quitman, Georgia, it’s against the law for a chicken to cross any road within the city limits… but presumably it’s ok outside the city limits.

In McDonald, Ohio, farmers can’t walk a goose down a city street. And poultry, particularly roosters, are not allowed to go into bakeries in Massachusetts.

In Kansas, it’s illegal for chicken thieves to work during daylight hours.

In Pennsylvania, it’s illegal to shoot bullfrogs on a Sunday.

In Vermont, you can be fined if your pig runs in a public park without the permission of a selectman.

French Lick Springs, Indiana, passed a law requiring all black cats to wear bells on Friday the 13th.

Madison, Wisconsin, will not allow joint custody of a family pet when a couple gets divorced.

In Texas, it’s illegal to put graffiti on someone else’s cow.

It’s illegal to ride a mule down Lang Main Street in August, unless the animal is wearing a straw hat.

Horses may not wear cowbells inside the city limits of Tahoe City, California.

In Washington, every cow wandering the streets of Seattle must wear a cowbell.

In Burns, Oregon, horses are allowed in the town’s pubs and bars, if they pay an admission fee.

You can’t blow your nose in public places in Leahy, Washington, because it might scare a horse and cause it to panic.
