“Mad dogs are said to be loose in the city. Better cut a hole in the ice, put all the dogs into it and cover up the hole.”

  1. G, kick ’em in the “ice hole”? 🙂

    bill, here’s a real life example of what your link suggested: a Michigan man is being charged with a misdemeanor that could get him 90 days in jail and a $500 fine for setting his dog on a raccoon that got into his garage and destroyed some property.

    The dog killed the raccoon, and a couple of teenaged boys captured this event on a cell phone. They have been charged as well.

    It seems in Michigan, it is “illegal for dogs to kill game, only to chase, retrieve or find it.”

    Sheesh!
