Laws are generally helpful in order for the safety and security of citizens. It takes a lot of effort to write a law then to have it approved and put on the books as well, so it would stand to reason that laws would make sense and be kept up to date. However, many states still have strange laws you have never heard about on their books. Thankfully, many of these are outdated and not enforced.

1. In Florida, it is illegal to tie an elephant to a parking meter without putting money in the meter. So it’s okay to use an elephant as transportation on city streets as long as you feed the meter when parking, like any other vehicle.

2. In Alaska, it is illegal to push a live moose out of an airplane. It might seem like an obvious law that no one should push a human or any animal out of an airplane. It is just interesting to think about how much moose pushing actually occurred in order for someone to feel it was necessary to put this law into effect.
