California law requires that people who already own exotic pets or plan to own them in the near future must obtain the appropriate permission from local authorities to do so.
A 6-year-old Los Angeles resident named Madeleine wrote a letter to the City’s Wildlife Control Department asking for permission to have a home…a unicorn. So far, Madeleine doesn’t have a fabulous animal, but she hopes that one day it will become her pet.
The officials turned out to be people who believe in miracles – they sent Madeleine a license, according to which she is allowed to have a unicorn. They also detailed how she should care for him: give him access to sunlight, moonlight, and rainbows, feed him watermelon, buy him only biodegradable glitter, and polish her horn at least once a month.
– It’s always good to know that young Californians carefully approach the process of bringing a pet into the home. – The director of the Department, Marcia Mayeda, wrote on social networks about the initiative that now anyone can apply for said license by paying $25. The money will go to a special fund for the protection of animals.
Since Mayeda’s message was posted, the department has received hundreds of license applications, which people present as fun gifts.
