Skip to comments.Bylaw to stop dogs from chasing squirrels, seagulls [Canada]
Posted on 12/27/2009 1:45:36 AM PST by Slings and Arrows
Sechelt dogs that "without provocation" chase any animal be it a rat, squirrel, seagull, bear or cougar would violate a dog licensing and control amendment bylaw that passed three readings at the Dec. 16 council meeting.
The first draft of the bylaw, prepared by District of Sechelt staff, would only have stopped dogs from chasing, biting or attacking domesticated animals. But at committee of the whole Dec. 9, Coun. Keith Thirkell suggested expanding the bylaw to include wild animals and birds as well. Thirkell argued that this would bring it in line with provincial and federal legislation that protects various wild animals, including migratory birds and endangered species.

You have a bright future as a legislator.
I learned that urban and rural people generally don’t make good couples.
Socialists Masters and the Morons Who Love Them... just like here in America.
The problem of what to do with dog feces has been discovered. Just pass a law saying they cannot take a dump.
One law makes as much sense as the other.
Oh, it’s that easy? Well then, we better expect a Canadian law against the earth’s warming — the earth will be incarcerated if it warms any further. And the oceans shouldn’t beat against some of the shores on penalty of a huge fine. And what about that silly sun, making the days longer and shorter. It’s awful and causes a lot of confusion and almanac difficulties, so the penalties for that should be severe. The sun and the earth will soon be doing time along with that pesky ocean. What’s next? The moon?
IOW the law is intended to be enforced selectively and politically.
Dogs will still be allowed to chase their own tails, right?/s
In the 19th century, Indiana almost passed a law declaring Pi = 3. So much stoopid in the world...
I’d like to see them get the dogs to testify.
Why not outlaw rainy days and Mondays!
Then we’ll create quality schools where all children are above average.
INTRODUCED, A BILL: 3 Date JUL 10 2010 TO: S.B. No. 666 SECTION 1.

Your dog summed up my opinion very succinctly.
Perhaps the dog chases actually help the animals stay “on their toes” to avoid becoming real prey to real predators. If dogs stop this behavior, these animals may become complacent to predators. Or maybe the animals actually like to be chased. Can anyone prove they don't like it?
(Yes, I realize this is all lunacy, so why not argue like a lunatic, a language the stupid left understands).
Beyond that, if my dog scares off a bear, cougar, or other dangerous animal on my property, then he is a hero, not a criminal. And if he succeeds in killing rats or mice, then he is doing a service to the community. Do these idiots not know that VERMIN carry diseases? Do they not know that the Plague was spread by the fleas on the rats?
What is missing here are the real killers - cats. MY dog has never been successful catching a bird or squirrel, but my cat has brought home NUMEROUS birds, squirrels, rats, snakes, mice, & moles - many still very much alive. Last year the cat brought home a huge, live rat. He brought him in the dining room, let him go, & watched in amusement as we frantically tried to catch the filthy thing.
This law will be nothing more than a revenue enhancer for lawyers. Most new laws nowadays are the same.
I vaguely remember reading about that. It’s like the dims’ thinking that they can repeal the laws of physics.
Congress is exempted, no doubt.
Actually, there was a bill introduced into the legislature in the late 1800’s to make PI (at least in Indiana) equal to the sum of a particular finite algebraic series, by law. (PI is a “transcendental” number, meaning it cannot be expressed exactly as the sum of any finite series, nor via finite series of algebraic operations, root taking, etc.) The value of the series wasn’t even particularly close to pi. There are lots “circle squaring” finite expressions for pi, this one wasn’t ever particularly good.
The advantage of such a law to the people of Indiana was dubious at best.
In the event the law died in committee and was never voted on.
In modern times, it has been determined that Chuck Norris can express pi exactly in an algebraic series containing only four terms. He’s working on reducing it to three.
God asks Chuck Norris for help with math homework.
