Bad Law

From the PetsitUSA.com Blog

Most cat and dog owners in Los Angeles will now be required to have their cats and dogs spayed or neutered.

I certainly believe in spaying and neutering pets, but I think it should be voluntary. I’m not sure laws like this are the solution. It seems to me this could have some very undesirable results. If people aren’t responsible pet owners to begin with, I doubt seriously they are going to rush in to have their pets sterilized. Instead, many are more likely to skip going to the vet for fear of being “turned in.”
