In Baltimore it's also illegal to take a lion to the movies. Could it have anything to do with them getting all worked up when that MGM lion starts roaring before the flick starts?
No person who is a "tramp" or "vagrant" shall loiter in any park at any time. They define tramp as a person who roves for begging purposes and a vagrant as an idle person who is able-bodied living without labor. It's a $50 fine. I guess the tramp would have to beg for the money to pay the fine. -Park Rule 6
