Texas Rarities: Milk Cows, Buffalo Assassination, Leash Laws and Roadkill

It is illegal to milk another person's cow.
(Is it because you'd be stealing milk or touching another man's udders?)

For $150 you can become a licensed dead animal hauler in Texas.
(You mean to tell me you have to actually pay to scrape roadkill off the highway?)

It is illegal to shoot a buffalo from the second story of a hotel.
(So if Lee Harvey got the kill from the Book Depository it's a crime, but if the "lone gunman" on the grassy knoll bagged him it's not? Sounds like a conspiracy to me!)

In Jasper, dogs must be on a leash at ALL times or suffer a fine of $100.
("ALL" times?? What about when he's in the yard or the house, what about it then, huh? You gotta love my alma mater.)

Jason Update

About Jason...
He graduated from Cowboy Camp and is working on the ranch in Wyoming as a trip cook. That's right "trip cook", the same guy we all know and love who could barely boil water to make mac and cheese is cooking on an open fire for people and is apparently really good at it! Who knew he had that talent in him? So we can all call him "Cookie" from now on. I love it, this is so rich! As soon as the ranch he works for posts the 2005 staff photo to their website I will post it here for your viewing enjoyment.
