AUBURN, N.Y. — A fake letter has been distributed to some in the City of Auburn claiming legislation has been passed requiring domestic pets to wear pants to cover their genitals.
The letter says a citizen brought forth her concern at a City Council meeting stating her discomfort over having to discuss canine or feline genitals when their children ask about them.
The letter goes on to say veterinarians are also concerned about the damage extreme weather can do to animals with exposed genitals.
The letter has been confirmed as fake by a spokesperson for the city who says it should be completely disregarded.
The writer of the letter then forges Mayor Michael Quinn's signature.
"We're disappointed and frustrated people would go to these extremes," said Auburn Mayor Micheal D. Quill when asked about the letter.
"While we maintain our sense of humor, the City of Auburn does not condone the creation or circulation of false information," said a spokesperson for the city. "The intentional misrepresentation of the law and the forgery of the signature of an elected official are illegal acts and should be taken seriously."
