Your Kangaroo is Not Welcome In Collingwood

Recently, there was a situation in Collingwood where a tenant in a townhome kept 54 animals as pets!  An inspection found the following:

3 Dogs
4 Cats
17 Female Rats
12 Male Rats
1 Corn Snake
i Bearded Dragon
1 Fish
2 Newts
1 Hedgehog
3 Rabbits
4 Degus
1 Chinchilla
1 Mouse
1 Ferret
2 Budgies               
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree…  Nah, just kidding on this one

There is only one thing I find more surprising than this tenants compassion for all things living and that is, they were not breaking any rules.  Provided the dogs and cats are licensed, there is not a darn thing anyone can do about this zoo in the ‘hood.  Can you imagine how thrilled the neighbours must be?

I surfed on over to the Town of Collingwood’s Restricted Pet By-law and sure enough, none of the lovely critters listed above is restricted.  Now on the other hand, you may NOT keep a kangaroo, elephant, walrus or alligator in your home.  Darn.  There go my plans for John’s birthday gift.
