Why?

Why is it illegal to hitch a crocodile to a fire hydrant in Michigan? Is this a problem there and are alligators ok?

Or illegal for an elephant to drink beer in parts of Mississippi. (not state wide)

Or in Brooklyn, it is illegal for a donkeys to sleep in a bathtub. In Detroit, this ban applies to humans. (FutureA, I guess you better keep this in mind. :lol: )

I believe I heard a couple of years ago that West Virginia made it legal to pick up your own roadkill. I think our government officials are either making too much money, have absolutely nothing to contribute that is good for America or there are just some sick people in this world, LOL!

It is illegal to pass a horse and buggy in NC with your automobile. You are supposed to pull off the road and wait for the horse and buggy to pass out of sight.

That's still covered in the drivers test in MA. You are supposed to slow down and not scare the horse but the horse has to follow the same rules as a car that can only pass legally.
