Pet Sterilization Becomes Law in Los Angeles

This is bad news if you're covered in fur.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Tuesday signed one of the nation's toughest laws on pet sterilization, requiring most dogs and cats to be spayed or neutered by the time they are 4 months old.

However, stupid people will still be allowed to breed uncontrollably.

The ordinance is aimed at reducing and eventually eliminating the thousands of euthanizations conducted in Los Angeles' animal shelters every year.

So make sure you spay your pets. Well, actually, get a vet to do it. Don't do it yourself. Trust me, it's not easy. And talk about messy.

"We will, sooner rather than later, become a no-kill city and this is the greatest step in that direction," Councilman Tony Cardenas said as he held a kitten at a City Hall news conference.

"That is, we won't be killing pets. Gang violence however will continue."

Councilman Richard Alarcon, who like Cardenas is a co-author of the bill, brought his two pet Chihuahuas to the event to be neutered in a van operated by the city.

Neuter-vans. That's...worrisome.
