What the hell? Yes, San Francisco is considering a ban of all sales of pets, except fish, if the Commission of Animal Control and Welfare votes yes on the measure tonight. Why the hell would they do this? Because you’re too immature, that’s why.
“People buy small animals all the time as an impulse buy, don’t know what they’re getting into, and the animals end up at the shelter and often are euthanized,” said commission Chairwoman Sally Stephens. “That’s what we’d like to stop.”
Pet shop owners aren’t too pleased to learn they would be fish shop owners instead:
“It’s terrible. A pet store that can’t sell pets? It’s ridiculous,” said John Chan, manager of Pet Central on Broadway, which has been in business 30 years. “We’d have to close.”
To be fair, this is only banning SELLING pets, not owning them or adopting them from shelters for free. But that’s how you get them psycho cats who murder you in your sleep. What? I’m not kidding. It happened to my friend’s neighbor’s cousin.
