Dog Teatherer's Could Face Criminal Charges in California

According to United Press International a bill moving through the California Legislature right now would make it against the law to tie your dog to a stationary object for longer than 3 hours.

Be careful because if this bill passes you could go to jail for tieing up your dog. Acording to UPI;

Violators could be fined $250. They can also face criminal charges with a maximum penalty of a $1,000 fine and a six-month prison sentence, says the report.

The LA Times also reported on this bill. According to LA Times;

A number of animal-rights groups say consistently tethered dogs are more likely to bite, suffer from lack of exercise or hurt themselves. But rural pet owners, ranchers and hunters — as well as Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's policy advisors — insist the measure too rigidly reins in dog owners.

This bill is interesting and humorus to say the least.
