Locally or lets say a village, does not have too as long as it does not trump or disregard state or Federal law. Reason being if you don't like the law, you can move to someplace you like better. You should not be run out of your state ot country by it though. Part of the reason I moved form Illinois to Florida.
If a farm or dog breeder can crop tails etc. Why can't this woman? You don't need a license and their is no over site as far as I know. On a federal or state level this means certain people are above the law. This is not acceptable.
In fact it stinks to high heaven just like "hate" laws. It creates a privileged class in what is supposed to be a representative republic.

You can't torture an animal. A drug company that has jumped through the proper loop holes can (in a manner of speaking). That's on the federal level.
be humble for you are made of earth; be noble for you are made of stars
The fir industry, Beauty Aids, cropping of ears and tails. Inbreeding of animals. The amount of allowed abuse at dog and horse tracks is sickening.
It is there and it is excepted. I see no one being arrested for any of that and thousands of other types of accepted animal cruelty going on.
It is pretty clear.

A local pet store sells 'painted fish'...which I'm told are fish injected with various fluorescent dies.
If these were 'Gothic Alligators' no one would give a ****, but oh noes you better not deface the poster children of lolcats!!
