It seems like Italy is desperate to find ways to make money. Now they are fining dog owners in Molise if their dogs bark between certain hours. Molise is the region where my paternal grandparents were born, although not this town where the canine law has been established.
Check this out from La Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno.it | Barking Molise dogs face fines and have shorter leashes. I like the photo in the article of the dog wearing a helmet and sunglasses!
