Pet keepers to pay special tax in Yerevan

According to a decision by Yerevan’s elderly council, those inhabitants of Yerevan who keep domestic animals at home are to pay 5000 drams ($13 US) annual fee to the municipal budget.

I see no problem with the fine, but I think it should be extended to include all animals, because Armenian oligarchs prefer lions and tigers, which don’t fall under the ‘domestic’ category. Why? Let them pay at least some taxes for a change!

  1. Ավելի լավ էր մարդկանց տուգանեյին շան հետեվից կեղտերը չմաքրելու համար։ Թե չէ 5000-ը կվերցնեն, իսկ փողոցները միևնույնը կմնան կեղտոտ։

  2. My cats don’t leave the house. Well, except when one of them falls down from the balcony on the fifth floor. Do I still have to pay the tax? ;-)

    Other than that, I fully agree with you that lions and tigers should be taxed as well.
