Irvine Bans Retail Dog and Cat Sales, Rodeos and Circuses with Exotic Animals

To the delight of animal rights activists and chagrin of the town's
lone pet store owner and the lobby that represents such businesses,
the Irvine City Council Tuesday night banned the retail sale of cats
and dogs. The council further earned gold stars from the likes of
Orange County People for Animals and People for the Ethical Treatment
of Animals by outlawing rodeos and circuses with exotic animals.

The ban bandwagon got rolling in August when the Irvine Co., which
owns most of the retail space in the city named after its founding
ranch family, revealed it would no longer lease or renew leases to pet
stores.
