It seems that everyone, from our loval government, to Washington DC, to Liberal activists, to homeowners associations are sticking their noses into every bit of our business
Melissa Lecker is walking outside her three-bedroom home in downtown Wausau, Wis., and talking about her dogs.
“These dogs are our family,” she says as she looks down at two 13-year-old golden retrievers, Abbie and Jesse.
Right behind her are her 1-year-old Yorkie, Archie, and Chester, her 3-year-old shih tzu.
“They are just like our children,” she says.
In fact, she says emphatically her four dogs are more important to her than her money or even her home.
“This house doesn’t mean as much to us as they do.”
Ironic because it’s the house she and her husband are set to lose because of their love for their pups.
James and Melissa moved to Wausau in early January, buying a new home and what they thought was the beginning of a great life in Wausau.
What they didn’t know is Wausau has an ordinance limiting the number of pets.
In Wausau, for instance, you can’t have more than three cats, three gerbils or three rabbits. And, unfortunately for the Leckers, you can’t have more than two dogs.
Laws like this over reach the common sense of those who author such bills. Yes, I am sure that there were plenty of “good intentions” behind this law. But, as history shows us over and again, along with those good intentions come unintended consequences. H/T Feral Irishman
