Did Lea Michele's Letter Push NY's Governor To Crack Down On Puppy Mills??

Lea Michele introduces her new pooch named Pearl in a sexy photoshoot

New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has got the right idea!

The governor signed a bill that will allow local municipalities to enact and enforce their own laws regarding commercial dog breeding facilities, aka puppy mills.

The law not only allows them to regulate themselves, but also makes it easier to crack down harder on breeders than ever before in New York, which now means that pet dealers will be able to oversee how the pups are raised as far as health and safety conditions are concerned.

Local governments can even require that pet shops only sell dogs raised in a healthy, safe environment, basically denying puppy mills the ability to sell dogs.

The bill was supported not only by the Humane Society of the United States but also Lea Michele!!

Lea had literally written NY's governor a letter only a few days before he signed the new bill, writing:

Mike Tyson's Conspiracy Theory: The Government Is Killing The Pigeons!

Filed under: Mike TysonBirdsFunnyCrazzzzy

Mike Tyson: The government is murdering pigeons!!

Mike Tyson is a huge pigeon lover!

He loves the birds so much he's really worried about the government conspiracy to kill them!

A paparazzi caught up with Mike at LAX and asked him all about the pigeons, and Tyson went on about how the government hates pigeons and is involved in a conspiracy to kill them!

What's funny is, this would normally sound like crazy person nonsense but it's kinda true, especially in NYC.

Back in the day, the city brought in hawks to take care of the pigeon problem. But that ended when a hawk attacked a small dog.

Though there are still hawks in NYC due to a "natural resurgence" according to the NYC Dept. of Parks and Recreation.

So, how do U feel? Are they urban doves or "rats with wings?"

Government Shutdown Leads To World's Saddest Photo!

Filed under: PolitikSad SadZooCute Kidz

A cute kid is sad that the government shutdown closed the zoo!

And, we thought the loss of the panda live feed was the harshest thing to come out of the government shutdown!

But, this picture pretty sums up just how we're all truly affected.

As we all know, the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. is "temporarily closed" because of the government shutdown.

While the men and women on Capitol Hill are stubbornly hashing out their petty bipartisan squabbles, not only have thousands of people been without work and pay for almost two weeks now, but as you can see by the (above) photo, it's greatly affecting the children.

And, we couldn't be more depressed.

It's just a picture of a gate, blocking the entrance to the zoo, with a big sign that reads:

"The Zoo is temporarily closed."

…Beneath the sign, hanging onto the gate like a prisoner clinging to the bars of his cell, yearning to pass through them, is a young child, wearing an animal ear hat, as he stares wistfully into the distance.

Dead leaves lie motionless in front of him…..

No cute animals for you today, Billy Everytoddler.

Have you no shame, U.S. Government?? Have you no shame!!!
