So I thought it was crazy when I saw a kitty cat and a bunny rabbit on a leash, but a snake?
In Sioux Falls, one man visiting a local park was asked by an officer to “leash” his snake and the instructions were accompanied by a citation!
Jerry Kimball said he initially thought the recommendation was a joke because it was April Fool’s Day when he was fined $190 and ticketed last week for “animals running at large” but it wasn’t.
Local Animal Control Supervisor Julie DeJong said a city ordinance requires all pets to be leashed or restrained in public, adding pet snakes can be held or kept in a container to comply.
I totally agree! If your pet has legs, leash; no legs, hold it…however, if you do place a leash on your snake, I might pay money to see that! ~grace
