Give it up for the Canadian Criminal Code

Posted on December 11, 2005


447. (1) Every one who builds, makes, maintains or keeps a cockpit on premises that he owns or occupies, or allows a cockpit to be built, made, maintained or kept on such premises is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction.
(2) A peace officer who finds cocks in a cockpit or on premises where a cockpit is located shall seize them and take them before a justice who shall order them to be destroyed.
R.S., c. C-34, s. 403.

That’s 20 minutes of uncontrollable hilarity right there.
