Just learned of a pending bill in Illinois. Here is the text of the bill: Illinois General Assembly - Full Text of HB1166 Here is a blog talking about the bill: Animal hoarding: It’s time we showed compassion to animal and human victims | www.NoPitBullBans.com I have six animals (two cats, two dogs, two guinea pigs), so I am one animal short of being a hoarder according to this lawmaker! How about you? I think Chazzers in Illinois should make sure this law doesn't pass! You can have more than 7 animals, but you would need a permit according to this. Its a state-wide pet limit law! Not cool!
