Just another day in the average life of a government worker. You know the drill:
Go by your house, don’t see a pet, fine you for not tagging your pet anyways.
Yes, that’s what really happened, and this type of extortion is happening in cities across the country. Pet owners are being threatened, their pets are being taken (if the government employee even sees a pet), and fluffy gets taken to the pound until you pay up hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Even if fluffy never left your yard.
It’s crazy, out of control animal control, and it’s just another symptom of a government system that wants to control every aspect of your life. Why? Because it’s about them having more money and power.
Last year, Riverside County, Calif. inspectors incited controversy for going door-to-door and giving out citations of up to $400 per dog in Indio’s low-income and mainly Hispanic neighborhoods. In some cases, they cited people for failing to have their pets licensed, sterilized, vaccinated and microchipped without even seeing the animals.
Yep, sounds on the up and up to me. Sounds like government business as usual.
