Retiring 'Price is Right' Bob Barker Persuades California to Pass Pet Bill
Okay, I'm all for spaying and neutering animals, but passing a LAW about it seems a bit excessive, doesn't it? For one, I'm opposed to so many laws controlling every bit of our lives... And for two, I fear the long-term effects of such a bill. Perhaps I'm being extreme... But it's only going to drive up the cost of pets. Purebred pets will be more expensive because the breeders will be forced to get special licensing. Non-purebred pets will die out, forcing people who want a cat or a dog to go to a breeder. I know my parents would never have paid money for a cat when I was growing up.
Perhaps it would be better to explore other ways of controlling the pet population, rather than passing laws and slapping down fines.
