Los Angeles Grants Girl License for Unicorn

outlandish news

While it certainly is a bit odd, this story is all sorts of adorable.

The County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control have granted a license for a young girl to own a unicorn, if she is able to find one.

Director Marcia Mayeda of the county Department of Animal Care and Control sent the girl a heart-shaped, rose-colored metal tag with “Permanent Unicorn License” emblazoned on it along with a fuzzy unicorn doll.

The girl had written a letter to the department over a month ago with one very specific request: “Dear LA County, I humbly ask for your permission to keep and care for a unicorn should I come across one.”

The Department acted in kindness, and posted the following on their Facebook page:

“This brought us so much JOY so we thought we should share with everyone. Madeline wrote us a letter requesting permission to have a unicorn in her backyard if she could find one. It is always rewarding to hear from young people who thoughtfully consider the requirements of providing a loving home to animals.

We commend Madeline’s sense of responsible pet ownership to seek permission in advance to keep a unicorn in Los Angeles County. As a result, we issued her a preapproved unicorn license. Also, in the meantime, because they are indeed very rare to find, we will be providing her the unicorn pictured below as she continues her search.
Thank you Madeline for reaching out to our department. Why, yes – we DO license unicorns!”
