10 odd drinking by-laws from around the world

Don’t give beer to moose (US)

Continuing the animal theme, over in Alaska it is illegal to give booze to any passing moose that one comes across.

One can only imagine how and why that law was implemented, but Alaska also has an opt-out of the 21 age limit in the US whereby someone under the age of 21 can drink alcohol in a restaurant that doesn’t have a licence to serve alcohol as long as the drink in question is served to them by a parent, guardian or spouse.

Oh and factoid: the last state to introduce 21 as the age limit for drinking was Wyoming in 1988.

Elsewhere in the US, it is apparently illegal to give alcohol to fish in Ohio, which again sounds oddly precise, but one can only suppose was originally introduced to stop the deliberate poisoning of fish stocks…perhaps?
