Doesn’t everyone like colorful birds? Well, if you’re in Center Line, Michigan, and want to make your drab bird a little more colorful – don’t. Why? In addition to the obvious reasons (so please, PETA, no more emails) because of this law:
Sec. 10-4. Artificially coloring birds.
It shall be unlawful for any person to artificially color, spray or paint any bird or fowl or to sell, offer for sale, or otherwise dispose of any such colored bird or fowl.
Must have been a craze back in the day. And yes, this law is still on the books, under Chapter 10 – Animals, Article I, Section 10-4.
