The town of Denison, IA, recently posted a backyard chicken ban so I decided to look further into it. Turns out it would have put in place all sorts of exotic animal pet bans, including ferrets, and put a pet limit on even aquarium fish! Luckily, the head of their animal control was able to put some sense into the heads of city council before any long lasting damage was done. While it’s important to have an agreed upon law for residents, blanket bans never work - they simply drive things underground.
