Wednesday night, voters at Concord’s town meeting will vote on a new leash law – for cats.
Lydia Lodynsky tells The Boston Globe that the bylaw that would be similar to one already in town for dogs…Lodynsky would sit outside in her yard to mourn. It was then she noticed the cats, and one by one, they would pick off birds, including a morning dove, a cardinal, and a black cap chickadee, according to the paper.
Now, one of the warrants on Concord’s town meeting tackles the idea of cats running loose. The Globe says that if a cat was to wander onto a yard, and the land owner doesn’t object, than there would be no issue.
She is right about one thing, cats are hunters and they do catch and kill a lot of small animals, often for sport. That being said we already have a similar ordinance…the law of nature. If you cat is out wandering the law of nature will be enforced by your local authorities.
The owners seemed to have taken them down, but my street had around 4 different “Missing Cat” signs up last fall. The cat isn’t “Missing” FYI.
**UPDATE** I missed this gem from the same meeting:
The town of Concord has banned the sale of bottled drinking water in town beginning in 2011.
“We only have one planet and I just don’t want to see it spoiled,” said Jean Hill, who introduced the measure at Concord’s Town Meeting.
Hill said that New York, Illinois and Virginia, as well as more than 100 cities, have taken action to cut spending on bottled water.
The measured passed by Concord would allow the sale of refillable containers of water, which could still be sold and delivered in town. Only plastic bottles that companies cannot reuse would be banned.
Anti-freedom, people! Remember Mommy .Gov knows best for you! Concord is LOUSY with moonbats!
BTW these morons don’t understand that people who drink bottled water can still get it by DRIVING to the neighboring towns to buy the same stuff, then hauling it home. You know, burning fossil fuels, as well as the local businesses who can’t compete with those who have the freedom to sell what their customers want.
This is “Progress” in “Progressive”. You wonder why I refuse to write it without the quotes.
