“Police said the Kelly family did nothing wrong and no one will face any charges”
If I go there next week, and my dog kills a child, can I claim I did ‘nothing wrong’.
I know a woman who went to prison because her dog killed a boy at the bus stop (and she should have, since she couldn’t control her dog).
But Kelly did nothing wrong? The animal was protected by the marine protection act...but ‘accidents are ok’? What if my boat accidentally kills a whale...whoops, an accident?
Those of us in the non-governing class would have faced a fine.
According to the Montage's website, you could bring a dog weighing up to 45 lbs:
Kelly's killer dog weighed 65 lbs:
You would be required to keep your dog on a leash at the beach in Laguna:
“No matter what time of year, dogs must be on a leash at all times (six feet or shorter).”
Apparently, it's okay that Kelly didn't feel the need to follow that rule. You or I would definitely be cited for whatever local, State, and Federal charges the authorities wanted to press.
Oh, and the stay at the resort would run at least $600 per night.
The right sort of whale can fetch $1,000,000 to interested Japanese fish buyers ... Just claim you belong to the Makah Tribe in WA State which can legally take whales.
Once long ago, a friend of mine at the time caught (had an accident) as a result of a collision between his drift net and a basking shark. The shark was longer than his 35’ boat, and having torn up the net in a huge mess had (cue the tears) expired.
He cut the shark out after hours of work leaning over the side, and salvaged what little he could of the net. At that point he pondered towing the shark in, but decided it wasn't worth the fuel cost, and so let it sink.
A day latter, he was at a friend's house who did taxidermy, and learned that the hide of the shark was (cue more tears) worth $1.00 a square inch ...
