Is this really a law in Denver?

I was perusing dumblaws.com this evening and came across this odd one: “The dog catcher must notify dogs of impounding by posting, for three consecutive days, a notice on a tree in the city park and along a public road running through said park.” Whaddya think? Is it legitimate?



And if so, are dogs in Denver just smarter? After all, surely the law should refer to the dog catcher notifying dog owners about the impounding, after all?


Which is a weird concept anyway: are packs of dogs roaming Denver allowed to do their own thing for three days after a complaint is filed? Or … ?


Or is this one of those crazy laws from 90 years ago that’s still on the books but safely ignored, like the Logan County law “It is illegal for a man to kiss a woman while she is asleep” and the two state laws: “It is illegal to ride a horse while under the influence” and “tags may be ripped off of pillows and mattresses.”


Uh, yeah. whatever. šŸ™‚
