It is illegal to serve alcohol to a moose in Fairbanks, Alaska. why does that even need to be a law....who would even try that?

I am a bit of a collector of useless trivia... who has some tidbits for me?

I'm assuming because Alaska has the highest number of alcoholics, and alcoholics make stupid decisions, such as endangering the health and well being of an animal.

In Michigan, it is illegal to chain an alligator to a fire hydrant (because we have so many around here?)

The small city I grew up in used to be a farm town. One of the laws still standing is that a farmer may not sleep with his pigs unless they are female. I guess Clawson used to be a little freaky, lol!
