For Easter, Avoid Dyed Rabbits

Although it might seem cute and a good idea for an Easter gift, it is illegal in Connecticut to offer for sale any dyed chickens, ducklings, other fowl or rabbits. According to the statute (CGS 53-249a), a person who dyes, colors or otherwise treats an animal so as to make them an artificial color is guilty of a crime and subject to a $150.00 fine. As "A Connecticut Law Blog" succinctly wrote on this issue, "Don't Dye the Easter Bunny."
