It's not a joke....which is what makes it both sad and hilarious beyond belief
It does make you wonder what they're using for brains in Connecticut's legal system.
Based on their ruling....let's see...dogs, cats, cows, goats, pigs, sheep, mice, rabbits (yes they bite too), chickens, ducks, geese, ....... pretty much everything except most types of fish used as "pets" qualify as "a species naturally inclined to do mischief or be vicious" in the state of Connecticut.
I think some Connecticut judges and lawyers need a lot of very serous psychological help
My dog knocks my grandchildren down all the time as she swings around to face each of them when they surround her while all trying to pet here. I guess that makes her "extra" dangerous
What makes it even more ridiculous (if that's possible
) is that Connecticut already as a law (as do all but a very few states) addressing this.
For Connecticut it reads:
"Assumption of risk by person engaged in recreational equestrian activities when, each person engaged in recreational equestrian activities shall assume the risk and legal responsibility of any injury to his person or property arising out of the hazards inherent in equestrian sports, unless the injury was proximately caused by negligence of the person providing the horse or horses to the individual engaged in recreational equestrian activities or the failure to warn against a dangerous condition, use, structure or activity by the person providing the horses or his agents or employees."
OK, Connecticut Appellate Court Judge: Here's your sign
