SELLING live animals on public streets has been illegal for a while in LA and in a brand new State law [eff 1/1/12].BUYING live animals on the street will become illegal after final City Council vote Wednesday, August 10. Real fines: $250 first violation, $500 second, and $1,000 third. For a $10 or $15 bunny! THIS IS FANTASTIC -- pending that final vote! Contacting your City Councilman might not hurt. An easy email.
(Kudos to Barbara T for sending this out onto the airwaves.)
