“Dear PoP,

Just found this in the D.C. Municipal Regulations, which appears to remain
the rule of the land…

From Title 22

103.15 Any dog going at large between May 15 and October 15th in any year
that is not properly muzzled shall be taken up by the pound master, who
shall charge the dog’s owner one dollar ($1) for its redemption.

103.16 Any dog that is not redeemed within twenty-four (24) hours after
being taken up by the pound master may be shot by the pound master.

I assume they don’t just shoot dogs any more.”

What’s the significance of May 15 and October 15th? Is that when dogs are in heat or something? There’s no way they still shoot dogs is there?
