Sane governments do not come up with this crap. VA AG Fears DC Law May Relocate Rat 'Families' to Virginia | CNSnews.com Cuccinelli said D.C.'s new rat law--the Wildlife Protection Act of 2010 (Wildlife Protection Act of 2010.pdf) --is crazier than fiction because it requires that rats and other vermin not be killed but captured, preferably in families; no glue or snap traps can be utilized; the rodents must be relocated from where they are captured; and some of these animals may need to be transferred to a wildlife rehabilitator as part of their relocation process. The law does not allow pest control professionals to kill the dang rats, Cuccinelli told CNSNews.com. They have to capture them--then capture them in families. [Not sure] how youre going to figure that out with rats. And then you have to relocate them. That brings us to Virginia. Now, if you dont relocate them about 25 miles away, according to experts, rodents will find their way back. Well, an easy way to solve that problem is to cross a river, and whats on the other side of the river? Virginia.
