    That it is against the law in Wyoming to take a picture of a rabbit during the month of June.

    In the UK it is illegal to be drunk on Licensed Premises. (im in trouble then)


    In the UK any person found breaking a boiled egg at the sharp end will be sentenced to 24 hours in the village stocks.


    In Chester you can only shoot a Welsh person with a bow and arrow inside the city walls and after midnight.



    In Liverpool it is illegal for a woman to be topless in public except as a member of staff in a tropical fish shop.


    The city of York allows Scotsmen to be shot with a bow and arrow, except on Sundays.

    I have been in WY for 12 years and have not heard of such a law. Then again I am not too familiar with a lot of laws. Anyway; I would not put it passed them. We have a lot of seemingly strange rules and openings/closures to protect critters.
