Oh, here's one that is NOT funny! I get an email of Animal Petitions regularly. Today one of the petitions was headed by outlawing live Pigeons being stuffed into spring loaded boxes and launched into the air to be shot. What happened to clay pigeons- which would shoot up into the air way better anyway!
But, "In addition the bill would outlaw the slaughter or sale of cats and dogs for human consumption". Officials with ASPCA state that even though it is "relatively rare" it is legal in the state of Pennsylvania. Actually, here is the article, Outlaw Horrific Live Pigeon Shoots
I thought this was America, where people know better!
