Default 7 Animals = Hoarding???? (Illinois)

Just learned of a pending bill in Illinois.

Here is the text of the bill:
Illinois General Assembly - Full Text of HB1166

Here is a blog talking about the bill:
Animal hoarding: It***8217;s time we showed compassion to animal and human victims |

I have six animals (two cats, two dogs, two guinea pigs), so I am one animal short of being a hoarder according to this lawmaker! How about you?

I think Chazzers in Illinois should make sure this law doesn't pass! You can have more than 7 animals, but you would need a permit according to this. Its a state-wide pet limit law! Not cool!

Hope it doesn't pass.

omg, we have 6 here and it feels like a pretty small group considering there are 3 of us looking after them.

That's crazy!

There's currently 6 animals in our house (4 dogs 2 cats) and that seems like nothing. We're about to get a dozen or so chickens, too, so that would put us WAY over limit.

What about fish, do they count? If so I was a hoarder even when I was living in the dorms!

I have six animals - three birds, two dogs, and a cat. So apparently I'm one animal short of being a hoarder.
