Weird LawsGood thing it’s Friday!  We get to read about more weird laws from across the United States.  Last week we saw a few random weird laws from all around the country.  Let’s see what weird animal laws are out there!

Below are this weeks weird animal laws.  Enjoy!

Alabama: It is illegal to set up bear wrestling matches.

According to a source dedicated to weird laws, Alabama outlawed bear wrestling matches because “it not only subjected bears to harsh conditions, but also risked the bears’ lives as well.”  What about the risk to the tamers or the spectators? Imagine how riled up a winning bear is after mauling the losing bear.  I can’t help but feel bad for the unlucky person who has to cage the bear afterwards.

Alaska: It is illegal to shove a live moose out of an airplane whilst in flight.

I plan on going to Alaska in a few months.  Will definitely avoid shoving a moose out of the airplane.

Colorado: It is illegal to ride a horse while under the influence of alcohol.

The rider or the horse?

South Carolina: It is illegal to keep horses in bathtubs.

When I first read this law, I couldn’t help put think that it was a pretty weird law, as horses are generally too big to fit in bathtubs anyways.  Then I read another similar law from Arizona that made it illegal to allow a donkey to sleep in a bathtub.  Folks in South Carolina and Arizona who want to keep a horse or donkey in their homes should probably invest in a rollaway mattress.

Georgia:  It is illegal to give away goldfish as an incentive to play of bingo.

This made me laugh.  I can’t even count the number of times I’ve won goldfish for playing bingo.  And yes, the goldfish was the main reason I played.

Maryland: It is illegal to take a lion to the cinema.

Seriously??  I would like to know which crazy person actually did this in order to compel legislators to enact this into law!

What do you think about these weird animal laws?  Are there any weird laws that you find unusually strange?
