In an attempt to reduce impulse buys that often land pets in the pound, the state of Louisiana has banned the roadside sale of animals. Governor Bobby Jindal signed a new bill into law prohibiting the sale of pets on the side of the road.

Under the new law, violators will face fines of $250 for a first offense, and a $1,000 fine for additional infractions. Animal advocates celebrated the announcement, saying that this change will directly impact the number of pets that end up in area shelters.
