NJ Law To Ban People From Tattooing and Piercing Pets

Posted: Updated:
Hudson County, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Three Hudson County lawmakers are pushing for legislation to ban people from tattooing and piercing their pets.

Judi Franco of NJ 101.5's “Dennis and Judi Show” chimed in to discuss this hot-button issue hitting the Garden State.

“All of the other problems in New Jersey have been solved, we have no more property tax issues, we have no more insurance issues, we have no more issues with overcrowding, we have no more issues with all of the nonsense we used to have. Everything is cool in New Jersey so they have nothing better to do, so let them do this,” she joked.

Oddly, there isn't one documented case in New Jersey where a pet owner has subjected their animal to tattoo's or piercings. The SPCA didn't comment and the Humane Society was confused, so why the need for this kind of legislation?

Some New Jerseyan's think this is just a way to distract from the budget and pension problems plaguing the state, but Franco has another hunch.

“You know why they do it? Because then they get their name on a bill and they get name recognition and then the next time they're running for something people go, ‘oh remember that nice Donnelly guy who likes animals and puppy dogs, lets vote for him because he likes puppies',” she said.
