permit authorize the wrestling of bulls in such State, subject to such conditions as may

be specified in the permit either on a special occasion of public interest or if he is

satisfied that such wrestling is beneficial to the breed and, in either case, that no

cruelty to any animal will arise from such wrestling, and where such wrestling is

conducted in accordance with the conditions of such permit paragraph (1)(g) shall be

deemed not to apply to such wrestling.

Council or Local Authority or General Manager of a Town Council or Town Board, as the

case may be.

my 3 month old puppy is eating my aloe plant. Is it dangeous?

According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the aloe vera plant is toxic to dogs. The principal components are from a class of chemicals called saponins. Saponins have a foaming characteristic and are present in the aloe vera plant.

Stop your dog from eating it right away and if he starts to have diarrhea or vomiting, you need to get him to a vet right away.
