    Rick Scott Approves Artificially Dyeing Of Animals

    Rick Scott Approves Artificially Dyeing Of Animals

    Florida Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff, R-Fort Lauderdale, snuck Amendment 303390, repealing a 45-year-old ban on artificially dying or coloring certain animals or fowl, onto HB Bill 1197, which revises certain agriculture codes in the state. Her amendment also permits chicks to be sold before they are 4 weeks old.
    I can only shake my head.

    I'm not familiar with this ban, but yeah, I agree with you on the head shaking. As far as chicks are concerned, isn't it pretty standard to sell them as day old chicks, though?

    Hedy The ban was put in place to stop the impulse purchases of fancy colored chicks, ducklings, and rabbits for easter.

    When I was young, every store in town would have a bin of the day-glo dyed animals to be sold for kids at easter.
    And then shortly after easter, every pond, stream, or park would be flooded with the unwanted animals that people had dumped.
    At least the ones that hadn't died outright already!
    I mean c'mon, easter was over with and little Johnny or Suzy was never really interested in the animals to begin with. It was just a momentary addition to their easter baskets.
    So NOW what do we do with them.
    But of course that doesn't matter as long as you can have your chartreuse and purple poodle!
    People!

    Yes. The original ban was the result of the easter offerings of dyed animals.

    That's pretty stupid. There's a guy around here who offers to take unwanted rabbits on Craigslist and he plainly posts that they're for his snakes. He gets tons of free rabbits after Easter. Why people buy animals they have no intention of keeping is beyond me.

    It's either that or a worse fate. Most people stop taking care of them and let them fester in their own excrements until they perish from starvation or dehydration.

    Snakes have to eat, too.
