STEP AWAY FROM THE SHEEP!!!

No, this post isn’t about that. Sometimes, browsing through the Mississippi Code will lead you to some surprising laws. Here’s one I found today, which is still on the books:

§ 97-17-49. Shearing wool from dead sheep

If any person shall shear or take off in any manner the wool from any sheep that has been killed by dog or otherwise, without first obtaining permission from the owner of such sheep so killed, with intent to convert to his own use or conceal the same, he shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction, shall be fined not less than five dollars nor more than twenty-five dollars and imprisoned in the county jail not less than five days nor more than twenty days.
