Gloucester County Obscure Animal Control Law

On the left is a picture of a local person.  His name is Charles Braxton.  He is an owner of a number of exotic snakes.  Animal Control hates snakes.  When this picture was taken some years ago, what Charlie was doing was okay.  It's now considered illegal in the county of Gloucester.  On the right is his grandson.  Also committing what is now an illegal act.  That's correct.  In Gloucester County, Virginia, you can not drape a snake around your neck.  Why?  The reason has been stated that someone found it offensive.

  Your rights further taken away because some idiot found what is going on in these pictures offensive.  This is only the first part of the story.  We will be posting the second part of the story very soon.  If you think this is ridiculous, it gets a lot worse.  Kool Aid is here and the drinking from the Kool Aid well is very high.

This is a quick shout out to Carl (Chuck) Shipley of Gloucester County Animal Control.  Soon you will be invited to a meeting and it will be very important that you attend this meeting.  It's not something you are going to be expecting.  Once you attend this meeting you will know what the intention of this post is for.

  For those of you who do not know, Carl (Chuck) Shipley is the person in charge of Gloucester Animal Control.  Carl also happens to own a local carpet cleaning business known as Chuck's Carpet Cleaning.
http://www.chuckscarpetcleaning.com/Pages/default.aspx  This is the link to Carl Shipley's side business.  Again I have to question why the county allows full time employees under it's direction to own businesses that have a potential for a conflict of interest in county business.

  What does a carpet cleaning business have to do with animal control?  Well let's look at that shall we?  If you own animals and you hire Chuck's Carpet Cleaning to clean your carpets, is it possible that something might be seen at your home that an Animal Control Officer might find offensive?  Or if you are a really good customer, is it possible that something that an Animal Control Officer might see and find offensive just might be overlooked because you are such a good customer?

  Has anyone experienced having problems with Animal Control after having their carpets cleaned?  Have a dog and have a problem with Chuck's Carpet Cleaning service and don't think you should have to pay?  You may just find yourself being visited by Animal Control and finding that your dog is in violation of some county ordinance.  Has this happened?  Can't tell you yes or no.  Can it happen?  You bet it can.  Does that create a conflict of interest?  YES, YES, YES!

  Enjoy the meeting Carl.  Update;  The meeting has been canceled.  You will learn why soon.
